On Sunday Virgil van Dijk was once again taking all the plaudits for his performance against Spurs in the Premier League and Liverpool fans were also enjoying his celebration after Toby Alderweireld's late own goal.
"He is my captain".
As for the summer and whether Spurs will be spending big, Pochettino said: "It's going to be massive".
"I was talking with Daniel after the Liverpool game and sometimes people compare us with Liverpool and say the very good action of [Virgil] van Dijk". He was great for us. They are a big threat on the counter away from home.
MADRID (AFP-Jiji) - Karim Benzema stopped Real Madrid's underwhelming La Liga season from going from bad to worse on Sunday after firing a last-minute victor to hand the European champions a barely-deserved 3-2 victor over bottom club Huesca. The results are in and here are your top five... There only looked like one victor as the game went on and, in the end, they lost the game.
"It's in our hands".
Tottenham's alarming loss of form threatens to take the gloss off the long-anticipated opening of their flashy new stadium as they contemplate a season without Champions League football.
"The players are not stupid, about the fact we're trying something so hard to achieve".
Pochettino has not been able to spend any money in the last two transfer windows and appeared frustrated as he sees rival clubs spending their transfer war chests.
"It's an exciting moment in the history of the club". That was true when that project started and now you realise the magnitude.
