'It is hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different'.

"What the club is doing is showing that it is so fearless because building a new training ground, finishing the (player) lodge this summer is a massive investment".

When asked about his previous comments, Pochettino said the fact the club was able to keep stars like Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min while spending £1bn on a new stadium and redeveloping their training ground was "brave".

On the day after the trial results were released, the company's stock lost 92 percent of its value. Chris Collins' lawyers responded swiftly, insisting he will be "completely vindicated".

Tottenham Hotspur have made some unwanted summer transfer window history after they became the first Premier League side to not make any signings in a summer transfer window since it first became a thing in 2003.

But there have been no new arrivals in north London, something which the Spurs manager said was in part down to Brexit making players more expensive. That is true, don't believe in £400m, that is the truth.

After a takeover in the summer, Steve Bruce is now in a position where he can bring players into Villa Park, as he looks to build his squad to the level which can challenge for promotion back to the Premier League. Of course maybe in the mind of everyone they will say, "Oh Tottenham didn't sign", but to sign for the sake of signing? That is a drama, I feel sorry for the English people.

In a statement, the Israeli military said the vessel was carrying 12 people and had been taken to the port of Ashdod. It marked the first time all members of the political bureau got together in Gaza, Hamas has said.

Spurs were open to offloading others, such as Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose, with Pochettino not keen on having unsettled players on the fringes of his squad who could potentially be disruptions as the season goes on. "It's a courageous decision".

"And I think that was a great job from the club to keep the best player and keep the manager". You need to be clever in how you settle your principles, your strategy and to try to win.

"If all the players today are thinking in a collective target, we can be competitive. That is the key this season".
