Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Pochettino slams reputations, £24m target signs new contract

A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that reputations mean nothing to him.

The boss has been tipped to make several first team changes for the game against Nottingham Forest this evening.

“Do reputations mean anything to me? No. I select the team but it’s up to the players to show me (they deserve to play),” Pochettino is quoted by the Irish Independent.

Former Tottenham transfer target Antonio Candreva has signed a new contract with Serie A side Lazio.

Spurs were one of the sides linked with the £24 million rated star during the summer transfer window.

“I have renewed my contract with Lazio, I am really happy. There is a lot of satisfaction. When I think back to two-and-a-half years ago, I never thought I would get to this point,” he said.

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has revealed that the Hammers are unlikely to share the Olympic Stadium with Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs need to find somewhere to play for the 2017/2018 season as they have been delayed in using their new stadium for a season.

“In reality they probably could [share]. But only with our permission, and no-one has asked us for permission. And even if they had, we would probably say 'no', depending on who it is - if you catch my drift,” she said.
