Poch: “I’m ready for the challenge”

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that this season would be his toughest at the club but claimed he is ready for the challenge (h/t Evening Standard).

Spurs became the first Premier League club not to sign a player in the transfer window since its inception (h/t Evening Standard). However, Pochettino did not want to make any complaints or excuses regarding the circumstances.

The Argentine was quoted by the Evening Standard as saying:

“Given everything, for me, it will be the toughest season and if we want success we have to give more than our best.

“100 percent is not enough – it’s 200 percent. We know from inside that the season will be hard and because we are warriors we want to fight.

“We want to be proud at the end, we want success and we do not want to complain or make excuses. I am a winner and I love the challenge, so I feel full of energy. We want to go again. The club, the fans, and the team need our full energy more than before.”

Pochettino added that Daniel Levy is trying to create a lasting legacy at Spurs and didn’t want to blame the Tottenham management or the chairman.

The Argentine claimed that Levy was working hard to generate revenue and attract the right players to the club, however, Pochettino backed the chairman to continue working on the stadium.

“The manager complains, the players complain, the fans complain – but he is working with his people trying to build a new era in the stadium.”
