Mauricio Pochettino clears air about selling Tottenham star a few years back

Tottenham Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale has become one of the best players in the world but Mauricio Pochettino recently claimed that Tottenham wanted to sell the player off as he didn’t start his career in London all that well.

The Welshman left Tottenham to join Real Madrid and has picked up four Champions League medals during his time in Spain.

Bale started his career as a left-back but is an attacker now and Pochettino was questioned as to why Spurs don’t sign players from the lower leagues as they did with Dele Alli and the Welshman.

The Tottenham manager was quoted by Football.london as saying:

“Yeah but remember with Bale, after three years he started to be a success. But they believed they signed a left-back and today he’s the opposite!

“That was a bit lucky, to be honest. Because after three years, when they told me all that happened, they wanted to [dusts hands to signify getting rid of the player].

“You know better than me the history! In football, sometimes someone is up here but it’s so lucky! Yes or no? That’s the truth! Come on after four years, we know each other and we need to be honest.”

The manager did claim that there are talented players in the lower leagues but there is some luck involved in getting a quality signing.

The Welshman did have that one incredible game against Inter Milan where he scored a hat-trick. That was a sign of him being a quality player but not many would have believed he would become this big.

Tottenham celebrate Carabao Cup win over Watford

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini expects Robert Snodgrass to be back for the London derby against Tottenham on Saturday, according to the Evening Standard.

The Scot withdrew from the Nations League game against Portugal and returned to England for treatment, as per the report.

Snodgrass didn’t play in Scotland’s loss to Israel, and the Hammers knew about his issue and were in communication with the national team.

West Ham were on a decent run before a 1-0 loss against Brighton & Hove Albion before the international break. The Hammers beat Manchester United at the London Stadium and even held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw.

Tottenham, for their part, will have a few players out with injuries. Jan Vertonghen is out till next month, as per the report, and a number of players could be last-minute call-ups as they fight to regain fitness.

Jan Vertonghen

Visiting the London Stadium will not be easy, especially after the international break but we have to win these games to keep the pressure on the league leaders.

Tottenham are a couple of points behind the pace-setting trio of Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City, and it will be important to see how we fare against our rivals on Saturday.

Juan Foyth

Juan Foyth hasn’t made an appearance for Tottenham this season but was called up for the international friendlies against Brazil and Saudi Arabia.

The youngster played eight times for Spurs last season but didn’t make a Premier League appearance. The Argentine joined Spurs from Estudiantes at the start of the previous campaign and shared some images of his time with the national side.

The 20-year-old defender was spotted with Santiago Ascacibar, Walter Kannemann, Fabri Bustos and Renzo Saravia.

The Argentine’s return to fitness will be a boost for the rest of the season and hopefully, he will get a few games for the club.

Tottenham have some injury concerns with Jan Vertonghen picking up a hamstring injury in our win over Huddersfield. The Belgian could be out till December and Mauricio Pochettino might have to rotate his team to ensure everyone stays fresh.

Tottenham’s next clash is against West Ham at London Stadium and it will be interesting to see who will play for the Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven.

Spurs lost their opening two games in their group and have to defeat the Dutch giants if we are to have any chance of making it to the knockout round.

Davinson Sanchez played for Colombia in their recent 4-2 win over the USA in an international friendly. The central defender has started eight games for Tottenham in all competitions this season and played against the likes of Barcelona and Inter Milan.

Colombia face Costa Rica in another friendly and Sanchez was in great spirits as he shared a few images of his team-mates in training.

The defender shared an image of Edwin Cardona and Matheus Uribe as Sanchez seemed to be dribbling the ball.

The 22-year-old also put up another picture of the entire Colombia squad from training. Stars such as Juan Cuadrado and Carlos Bacca were seen posing, and the team will look to pick up another win over Costa Rica in the coming days.

Sanchez had a decent World Cup with the national side but he has had some tough outings for Tottenham this season.

The Colombian played in our losses to Watford, Barcelona and Inter Milan and we need to buck up in the Champions League.

Our next two games are against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League group and we have to win those fixtures if we have any chance of making it to the knockout rounds.
