Pochettino wants no repeat of Hazard's derogatory Tottenham comments

"It is obvious. It is the same situation as Jan".

The 29-year-old barely played at the back end of last season, despite being fit after a hamstring injury, as Pochettino appeared to freeze him out.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has made it clear that he wants no repeat of the "disrespect" his team was shown by Chelsea and their players when Spurs last attempted to win the Premier League.

He looked comfortable in the 5-0 win over Bournemouth on Boxing Day alongside Toby Alderweireld and the same centre-back pairing should take to the Wembley pitch against Wolves in what would be a huge vote of confidence.

Pochettino said. "Sometimes for us it's so tough to discover the real state and level of the players".

"Wolves are a very good team that play very well".


"We can not ask more from our fans, they are doing a fantastic job", he said. "That increases the level, the competitive level in the squad and for sure helps to get good results".

But Spurs would have to receive that £25m offer from another club 14 or more days before the end of the summer 2019 transfer window.

A few names have come forward for the lucrative role but the name of Mauricio Pochettino seems to be shining the brightest.

'Now we are in the last 16 of the Champions League, we're second in the table on 45 points, a record in the Premier League, in the Carabao Cup semi-final and of course we are going to start the FA Cup soon. For sure it's going to be tough to add. We go to compete, play, realising what you have to do, stick to your tasks, have a game plan and play the game.

"Maybe every day we talk (with chairman Daniel Levy and chief scout Steve Hitchen) but it depends on if players are going to leave and to have space to sign players".
