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

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been quoted by the Daily Star admitting it’s going to be difficult for his team to make the Champions League.

Tottenham have seven games to go and are chasing a big gap to the sides above them suggesting they may have left themselves with too much to do.

Pochettino admits he doesn’t know how many points it would take for Tottenham to achieve a position in the top four.

“Making the top four is going to be difficult but we have seven games to go - I don't know how many points we will need,” said the boss.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has conceded to BT Sport that the past week could be considered the best of his career.

Kane was handed the Tottenham captaincy for the draw against Burnley yesterday capping a superb season.

However, he was unable to take his goal tally onto the 30 goal mark for all competitions as the match ended 0-0.

“Yes you could say it has been the best week of my life - to score, to make my first start and score for England, and to be captain today. It has been an unbelievable couple of weeks,” he said.

KingFut.com has reported that Tottenham have taken on 12-year-old Ahmed Zaghloul for a week of training in their academy.

The highly rated Egyptian prospect impressed during recent games at the Tottenham Hotspur Americas Trophy.

He will reportedly play in a number of trial matches with a number of selected other youngsters.
