Spurs morning news: Boss on being smarter; takeover latest; ground-share tipped by ex-pro

A select round-up of the latest news relating to Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said his side needed to have more of a killer instinct against Sunderland, thus not allowing them to snatch a late equaliser.

Spurs drew 2-2 with the Black Cats on Saturday after a late Harry Kane own-goal levelled the scores, and in quotes published by Yahoo Sports, Pochettino said, “We needed to kill the game off.

“We scored two goals away from home but we had to be more solid. If you concede goals like we did today after going ahead twice then it shows we need to be smarter.”

Tottenham will have hoped to get back to winning ways after losing to Liverpool prior to the international break. But it is clear their boss will analyse things in the coming days in an attempt to ensure his players learn from their latest setback.

In other news Goal.com reports that Tottenham have doubts over Cain Hoy’s credentials in terms of possibly taking over the club.

The private investment company have been linked with a move for Spurs but Goal claims the club have doubts regarding their reported interest.

It was reported last week that Spurs’ owner Joe Lewis is prepared to sell the club.

And finally, former Spurs player Clive Allen believes Tottenham could share the Olympic Stadium with West Ham United while their new stadium is being built.

In quotes published by the Daily Star, Allen said, “I can’t see a reason why West Ham would oppose the move.

“They will move in there and make it their new home but there are so many teams throughout Europe who share the grounds.”
