Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino reacts to Toby Alderweireld's latest comments to the press

Tottenham Hotspur have created a squad without egos, according to Toby Alderweireld.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has told the Hampstead and Highgate newspaper that he is pleased with Toby Alderweireld’s latest comments to the press.

The Belgian defender suggested to that Tottenham no longer have any ‘heroes’ in their squad, with everyone pulling in the same direction.

And Pochettino says that is exactly the message he has been trying to get across to Spurs’ squad and supporters so far this season.

“I have read some players, like Toby [Alderweireld], have said that at Tottenham now there are ‘no heroes’, that we are all together and our key is to be all together and to feel that,” Pochettino said.

“This is an important thing and a message for all of our supporters. I think the energy that we create and the synergy between our supporters and the team, I think that is very important for our future.”

Pochettino’s methods at Spurs have been ruthless, with a number of players deemed surplus to requirements, but there is no doubting the club have moved forwards under his stewardship.

The Argentine boss took over at White Hart Lane when there were great concerns about which direction the Lilywhites were heading, but he has helped them progress.

Tottenham are on the verge of creating a very memorable season, as they chase a Champions League spot in the Premier League.

Spurs are currently in third place in the top-flight standings, after moving ahead of Arsenal on goal difference, and they are also still in the FA Cup and the Europa League - giving them a wonderful opportunity to claim some silverware in May.
