Our next game is against Chelsea after the break is over, but it seems Pochettino wanted to keep an eye out for future talents from the Catalan side.

A report from Sky Sports adds that the gaffer and his coaching staff, Toni Jimenez and Jesus Perez, would be travelling to Barcelona for a conference to represent the Catalan Football Federation.
The Argentine was quoted (h/t Sky Sports) saying:
“The Catalan Federation asked us to go there and talk with the Catalan coaches, and I think it is a great opportunity to share, and explain how the Premier League is and Tottenham.”
Spanish reports (h/t Sky Sports) claim Pochettino could have been at the game to scout some Barcelona players.
Sky Sports adds that Spurs were interested in Barca B star Riqui Puig, who did play in the match Pochettino saw.
The manager knows the Spanish league well from his time at Espanyol, and given the history between Barcelona and his former employers, it will be interesting to see if we do snap someone up from the Catalan giants.
