Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Pochettino praises team, Allen defends Soldado

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

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has hailed the character of his team.

Spurs secured a late win away at Swansea yesterday thanks to a late strike from Christian Eriksen.

“It was an important win, but it is also important to show character and fight and we did that. They are a very good side with good players and it's not easy to get three points here,” said the boss.

Former Spurs star Clive Allen has become the latest to urge the club to stand by Roberto Soldado.

The Spanish striker has struggled for goals ever since he joined Tottenham, with reports suggesting he could be sold this winter.

“A man in form, with the ability he has, he should be taking those chances, so you can see his confidence is suffering but I think Spurs have to stick by him,” he told talkSPORT.

Championship side Brighton are reportedly eyeing up a move to sign Tim Sherwood as their new manager.

Former Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia is under pressure at the club, with the ex-Spurs boss being tipped to replace him by the Mirror.
