Pochettino

A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Wednesday evening.

Former Tottenham striker Jurgen Klinsmann has said that Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino needs more time at White Hart Lane, and described him as 'a high quality coach'.

Spurs have had a bumpy start to the season, but are still competing on all four fronts and a decent run of form in the league could put them firmly in contention for a place in next season's Champions League.

The German told TalkSport: "Sometimes it takes two years and others it can be four or five years. That’s a long time for impatient media people and fans but he has all the qualities to build something very special here at Spurs. I hope he is given the time.

“He needs a couple of transfer windows of his own to put the pieces together that he wants to. He has a specific way that he wants the team to play and that’s orientated by some of the best teams in the world."

Right-back Kyle Walker is expected to return to training next week according to the London Evening Standard, after struggling with a pelvis injury.

Walker's last competitive game for Spurs was in March when they lost to Benfica in the last 16 of the Europa League under Tim Sherwood.

Whether he returns to training with the first team next week depends on the progress he makes when training with the under-21s this week.

The Independent is reporting that three players could be heading towards the Tottenham exit door. Andros Townsend, Aaron Lennon and Mousa Dembele are rumoured to be allowed to leave with reported doubts about their ability.

The articles cites a report from the Evening Standard suggesting Paulinho and Vlad Chiriches could also leave the club.
