“We will see” – Pochettino unsure if current side is the strongest he has managed

Mauricio Pochettino unsure if current side is strongest he has managed

Mauricio Pochettino is unsure if the current Tottenham side is the strongest he has managed. Tottenham didn’t sign any players in two transfer windows before landing four signings this summer.

Spurs also allowed a few squad members to leave, like Fernando Llorente, Michel Vorm, Kieran Trippier and Vincent Janssen.

However, the manager is unsure about the quality of his team but will reserve final judgment until the end of the season (h/t Sky Sports):

“We will see at the end of the season. At the moment I don’t believe this is the best squad.”

The Argentine highlighted that the previous squad could be considered better as they reached the Champions League final, and claimed that winning a trophy could change things for the team:

“But I think if you only see the results, playing in the final of the Champions League, it’s easy to say the better squad was last season’s squad because we got to the final.

“We will see if we can repeat, or if we win some trophy maybe we can talk about this being the best squad.”

Pochettino hasn’t been helped with injuries

Tottenham had their injury problems last season and this campaign hasn’t been any different either.

Tanguy Ndombele looked impressive before picking up a problem while two of our summer signings, Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon, are yet to be handed starts since joining. Lo Celso has picked up minutes from the bench but is out until October with a hip problem.

The lack of fresh faces certainly has affected our results this season and hopefully, we go on a string of wins in the coming weeks.

Pochettino needs the team to push on from last season’s results, and we have kept the core of the side that reached the final of the Champions League to help us achieve that.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998.
