Pochettino has faced constant questioning this summer over the futures of the likes of Danny Rose, Mousa Dembele and Toby Alderweireld.

The Spurs boss has finally had enough, assuring journalists that he is happy for every first team player to leave, claiming that he can just play the under 23 team instead.

“Harry Kane is here, Dele Alli is here, [Victor] Wanyama is here, [Eric] Dier is here, [Fernando] Llorente is here, Alderweireld is here.

“I don’t understand why you focus only on some names.

“Maybe you have some information I don’t have. Or better relations with me than someone.

“I don’t understand rumours about, you know, transfer window closing. It’s not a problem if we lose one or two or three. Because we have plenty of players in the academy, no problem.

“I am more than happy. I am more than happy to keep all the players and I am more than happy if they leave and we play with the U23s.

“It’s not a problem, I promise you. Not a problem for me.”
