Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Pochettino explains how he'll deal with chaotic fixtures

WH Lane

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

Mauricio Pochettino has been quoted by the Irish Examiner suggesting his side will cope with the team’s heavy fixture list over the next 17 days.

Spurs are due to play six games before the end of that period, which will place a massive strain on the squad.

“It’s important to manage the squad and always analyse after the games each case and each player. And after to be clever and select the best player,” said the boss.

Tottenham have a great chance to succeed on multiple fronts, but they need to get through this period.

Nacer Chadli has been quoted by the Daily Mirror suggesting that Pochettino’s regime is like being on Big Brother.

Pochettino is notorious in the length of detail he goes to in order to ensure that all members of his squad are pulling their weight effectively.

“We always train with the GPS vests. They are looking at players. If someone gets tired the staff can see it on the GPS - Yes (it is like Big Brother is watching),” said the Belgian.

He’s also admitted that on one occasion, he tried to put his GPS vest onto a cat.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker in the Daily Express.

United have reportedly identified the experienced right-back as a player who can come in and offer solidity to their defence for next season.

The Express claims he’s an alternative in case they fail to do a deal for Brazilian Dani Alves.
