Tottenham Hotspur morning round-up: Foster comments on the possibility of Berahino leaving

Saido Berahino

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster has been quoted by FourFourTwo saying he understands if Saido Berahino wants to leave the club.

Tottenham are one of the side’s the magazine mentions as interested in signing the England under-21 forward.

Foster has admitted that he understands if the player wants to go, should a bid acceptable to the club is made by another side.

“Without a doubt I want him to stay but I completely understand if a team is going to come in with a £25-30 million bid,” he said.

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has piled praise onto Mauricio Pochettino in the London Evening Standard.

Scholes has called Pochettino the best young coach around and has described two aspects of the Argentine he’s impressed with.

“What I like about Pochettino is the way that he looks in control. He is in control of his players, in control of the way that they play. He is confident,” said Scholes.

Pochettino has guided the club to a good position in the fight for the top four and they have a League Cup final to look forward to.

England senior manager Roy Hodgson has admitted on the FIFA website that Harry Kane is ready for an England call-up.

Kane scored his 23rd goal of the season for Spurs earlier this week, as he continues to improve his chances of leading the England attack.

“Is he (Kane) worth a place in the squad now? Of course he is,” said the England boss.

Tottenham don’t play again until the Europa League match against Fiorentina next week, as they’re already out of the FA Cup.
