Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino spoke to the Brazilian media after the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace this weekend.
The Argentine boss obviously had big compliments to make to his team, who hadn’t won a game in the previous three fixtures, and finally managed to get back in the top four.
Besides speaking of the game, Pochettino was also quizzed about the issues Tottenham had in the summer. DAZN reporter Renato Senise asked him if he’s happy with the signings and with the fact that Christian Eriksen stayed in the team.
“Well, yeah, it wasn’t easy. It wasn’t an easy summer, it wasn’t easy vacations and the beginning of pre-season. For all that was around the team. Of course I wasn’t satisfied,” Pochettino told DAZN.
“But by the time the transfer window was closed, and we have the squad we have, I’m very happy. I’m positive, I’m optimistic that we will have a good season. And today it shows that when we are all together and focused, fighting for the same goal, the team has the quality to be fighting for great things.”

Pochettino’s stressful summer didn’t work out too badly for Tottenham in the end.
Real Madrid didn’t make the move for Eriksen, something the Denmark international was clearly hoping for, and after months chasing Giovani Lo Celso, and an unsuccessful attempt to sign Bruno Fernandes from Sporting, Spurs eventually got their Real Betis target on a structured deal.
