Pochettino sends out encouraging message to Tottenham youngsters

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has reaffirmed his desire to bring through academy players.

Mauricio Pochettino has hinted that even more Tottenham Hotspur youngsters could get a first-team chance in the near future at his press conference.

Pochettino has placed great importance in giving their more promising academy graduates opportunities this season, and it seems that his faith is only increasing.

The likes of Nabil Bentaleb, Harry Kane and Ryan Mason have highlighted just how successful Tottenham's development programme is, and it appears that more youngsters could benefit from it in the coming months. 

Pochettino was in attendance at Tottenham's youth-team match against Chelsea last night, which Spurs won 2-0, and he was clearly impressed by what he saw.

"Yesterday was a great opportunity to see our young talents play a big team like Chelsea on TV," Pochettino was quoted as saying by the Ham and High paper.

"Maybe these players have the possibility to play in the first team. There were good performances - there are many, many talents in the academy.”

The likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers, Kyle Walker-Peters and Joshua Winks have all been tipped to be in with a chance of making the grade at White Hart Lane, and with statements like this Pochettino can only be giving them more confidence of success. 

Spurs are known to be looking to utilise their youth system far more efficiently, and the Argentine manager looks the perfect man to oversee this change in strategy as he has so much faith in youth. 

Tottenham are building an exciting, young squad, and if they are able to produce more of their own talent, then it can only serve them well for the years to come.
