Mauricio Pochettino 'Not Optimistic' About Tottenham's Transfer Business Prior to Deadline Day

Reflect on Mauricio Pochettino's stewardship of Tottenham how you like - and fans of all persuasions happily will - but it's nearly impossible to argue with the notion that he has dramatically improved a core group of players and taken the north Londoners to new heights.

Asked about transfers, he told a press conference: "A few days ago I was optimistic about a few options that we could sign, but today not too optimistic".

However, as reported by The Independent on Tuesday afternoon, the Spurs boss has revised his previous comments by now stating he is not hopeful of bringing in any new players before the window slams shut.

"Our thought was to play in September from the beginning of the season in the new stadium and now we are in February and we don't know if we are going to play there", Pochettino said.

The lack of business this month has only compounded the club's injury crisis further, with Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Ben Davies all still sidelined, though fans will be buoyed by the timely return of one Son Heung-min.

"The only way we can reach the next level, and win titles, is by improving, improving, improving. That's the difference between Tottenham and the teams that are built to win".

The Argentine has been linked with the permanent job at Premier League rivals Manchester United, and has also been a long-term target of reigning Champions League holders Real Madrid. "They said to me, 'We know very well that we are not going to provide everything that you deserve and you want".

The club's faltering form, which saw them go out of the Carabao Cup and FA Cup in the space of four days last week, has also led to calls for Pochettino to freshen up his squad.

"We are focused in trying to win in every single game. The fans that are not happy, of course with perspective in the future they are going to appreciate the job everyone is doing at this football club". I only wanted to translate [on Sunday] that we are doing fantastic things. It's been one of the things that has prevented our growth. "For Tottenham to one day be at the same level of Real Madrid that is the most important thing; the bigger picture, that we are going to have one of the best stadiums in the world". "It's an inspiration for everyone".
