The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern were delighted to see the club return to winning ways over the course of the weekend, though the punters propping up the bar aren’t sure it’s enough to get their Premier League campaign back on track.
Indeed, after the recent hammer blow suffered after Toby Alderweired‘s latest injury setback, our north London locals are eager for a boost. With that in mind, comments made by Mauricio Pochettino in his pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow’s game at home to Brighton have proven rather interesting.
As relayed by journalist Ben Pearce on Twitter, the Argentine coach claimed he was ‘calm’ about Daniel Levy’s management of players and their contracts, as the aforementioned Belgian’s saga on that front drags on. Much has been made about the wage structure in place at Spurs, though Pochettino clearly doesn’t have any issues with Levy, despite what that structure could do to his side.
#thfc Pochettino says a decision will soon be made about whether to bring Cameron Carter-Vickers back from his loan spell, given Alderweireld's absence. He also says he is “so calm” about Daniel Levy’s management of players’ contracts, with reference to Alderweireld’s future.

It must be frustrating for Pochettino, should a player such as Alderweireld depart because of money. However, he surely knows the limitations in which he works and won’t be able to complain too much, with that how Tottenham have always operated under Levy.
