Next Real Madrid manager: Pochettino crucial to Tottenham future


"It's about communications, feelings and is more up to the players".

Tottenham was boosted in the week with the news that Dele Alli has signed a long-term extension with the club, along with progressing into the quarterfinals of the league cup with a 2-0 win over West Ham.

Alli penned a new six-year contract to stay at Spurs this week and insisted that working with Pochettino was a big reason for his decision.

Lamela, who has been directly involved in 11 goals during his last 12 appearances for Tottenham, scored against Wolves and is proving to be an invaluable asset as he starts to repay Pochettino's faith.

"You put the game at risk".

In a rather freaky move, the Argentine likened the situation to that of another woman looking at him whilst he was out with his wife.

"In the opposite way, if no-one looks at you, your wife says, "Maybe it is better with another guy". In a global way, I think I am not happy, I think Felipe is not happy. Of course the manager has his expectations and so do the staff; and I think they try to give us the main tools. When you are in possession and go forward, you need to be strong too when you are in a defensive situation. "We'll see. I don't want to say anything because we need to assess him tomorrow and on Monday.

Yes, I want to feel the glory with Tottenham", he said.

With Julen Lopetegui having been sacked by Real Madrid following their dismal start to the season, and with Antonio Conte reportedly ruling himself out of the job, the speculation linking Pochettino with a move to the Bernabeu has only increased, especially after he admitted that he considers Spurs' current start to the season as being his worst at the club.

He is weighing up a move for £20m-rated Espanyol defender Mario Hermoso, with club scouts making several trips to watch the 23-year-old this season.

"We don't know but we are a little bit anxious", said Pochettino.

Kane's most recent goal also brought to light an interesting statistic, as the sharpshooter has now remarkably found the back of the net against 27 of the 28 clubs he has faced during his time playing in the Premier League.

Fans on social media were thankful that their side managed to hold onto the win, however, many slammed one of their players after the game.

Spurs face their third game in five days in today's 7.45pm kick-off at Wolves with midfielder Victor Wanyama the latest name added to their injury list with a knee problem.
