Mauricio Pochettino calls Tottenham's summer transfer inactivity 'brave'

"We are a club that our decision was not to sign, though it is the fashion to sign or because we are the only club in Europe that has not signed players".

"Which Premier League club didn't spend anything during the summer 2018 transfer window?"

Sources told ESPN FC that Grealish is open to the idea of a move to Tottenham as he wants to play in the Premier League and the Champions League.

Pochettino had been linked with several players and a fresh approach for Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish was rebuffed by the Championship club earlier this week.

Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele could still leave in the next few weeks, but Pochettino has been able to keep hold of the likes of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Kieran Trippier. "We saw with Arsenal they had to sell a player every summer - if Spurs can get away with that then fair play". "I am the boss and if I expect from you to do something, then you need to provide it".

"It's not about adding because it's fashionable to sign players", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said Thursday.

"It's true our targets are always the same level as Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid but for different circumstances we can't achieve that".

"I am so happy with the way they came back to training on Monday".

"That maybe looks bad because of the perception and history of football but that is our decision - to keep the best players and to keep the squad".

The 46-year-old is refusing to panic about the lack of arrivals and insists he is happy with the direction the club is heading in. When it's not possible it's not possible and you have to move on and believe in the way we work and be competitive.

"Of course it's hard to understand for people that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently".

"The most important thing is we're so positive and of course we're going to challenge for big things this season too".

Pochettino says he is glad to keep his Spurs squad together amid speculation surrounding his stars.
