Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: "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".

Tottenham fans were hoping the club would build on last seasons encouraging campaign that saw them finish third in the Premier League table by bringing in some top quality additions this summer to strengthen what is already a very talented young squad. I think it is clear what is going on and how we are going to move in the future.

Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele were all expected to leave this summer, and they still could if they are willing to move overseas.

Alderweireld was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but firm interest never materialised.

'We didn't receive (any offer) for any player, ' Pochettino told reporters in his pre-Newcastle press conference.

"We didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is hard to add players". They couldn't even sign a player from the Championship. It's about if you really need them or not and then if you can get your target or not.

"Our targets are always in the same level of Real Madrid or Manchester United or Manchester City, but for different circumstances we can not achieve that".

They need to try to be focused and ready to compete and give their best when I decide to put them on the pitch, and then be professional on the training ground. To keep our best players was our objective and goal and we have achieved that - at the moment, we will see what happens in the next 20 days in Europe.

But there have been no new arrivals in north London, something which the Spurs manager said was in part down to Brexit making players more expensive.

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.

"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".

"If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together". When we were looking for options up front, we knew how important experience would be.
