Alderweireld, Aurier, Lamela, Llorente


"Personally I would sign for Arsenal due to the fact that Spurs have a better defence and I probably wouldn’t play." - Joleon Lescott

Mauricio Pochettino was asked about Toby Alderweireld who has yet to be officially offered a new contract despite initial talks already having taken place.

"He was talking with me this morning and he's so happy, he wants to make it clear he is fully committed with the club."

Pochettino spoke about new right-back signing Serge Aurier who has been the subject of some distension from a section of Spurs fans. I recall writing early in the summer that it seemed to me that his problems revolved around a break down in relationship with his manager at PSG and that everything was a reaction to that. Had there not been that difficulty, the two clearly don't like each other, then perhaps his off the field problems may not have arisen.

"We had a long chat. He knows v well how we are, what we expect. It’s so important, not only him, every player, how they behave. I’m the first to make mistakes in my life. It’s important people give the opportunity to show that you learn."

Pochettino explained that there were only 17 players available to player from associations other than the English FA trained players so some players had to be left out. Erik Lamela isn't going to be fully match fit until November probably and the other unlucky player was Vincent Janssen. He told reporters it was simply about numbers.

He went on to suggest that getting the chance to sign a player like Fernando Llorente was an opportunity that was too good to miss nad was delighted that he chose to join Tottenham over Chelsea. His experience in winning a World Cup would be valuable to our young squad.
