Mauricio Pochettino has said, despite a challenging transfer window, he was content with how pre-season is progressing.
The Spurs boss is without nine first team players who were involved in the latter stages of the World Cup for our tour of the USA which is part of the preparations for the new campaign.
Premier League clubs agreed to close the transfer window on Thursday, August 9th –the day before the season starts.
However according to Sky Sports Pochettino was in a relaxed mood following an open training session in Los Angeles
“The Premier League transfer [deadline] day is so early when you compare it with the rest of Europe. It is not going to help a team like us but that is how they decided to work,”:he told Sky Sports News.(www.skysports.com)
He added:”Every season is the same, we talk about adding more quality.It is always about [players] in and out. We are trying to arrive in the competition in the best condition.
Pochettino went on to say:”There are a lot of things to improve but I am happy in the way we are working. After the World Cup, it is always difficult but we need to adapt our plan for different players.England players were involved [until the semi-finals] compared to four years ago or eight years ago [when they were knocked out much earlier].But that is a good challenge for everyone.”
