Pochettino added: "We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that".
Pochettino praised the work being done on the club's new ground and the training complex and in securing top players like England duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli on long contracts.

Speaking about any possible incomings, the Tottenham manager said in a press conference: "I think it's so hard now".

'I am the boss and if I expect from you to do something, then you need to provide it.
But Pochettino believes the club have acted on his demand in a different way.
