"If some player is not happy because he needs to play or believes he can play more at another team, or needs to change the environment, or needs a new challenge or motivation, I told them that I am open to find the solution". Top signing Jean-Michael Seri looked fantastic in last week's season-opening loss to Crystal Palace, but defensive midfielder Andre Zambo Anguissa has yet to make his team debut after signing on Deadline Day.

While Pochettino confirmed N'Koudou may get the chance to play more games and develop himself somewhere else, he also perceives the lack of new additions has boosted the confidence of his current group.

"It's about time, taking the right decisions to provide them days off, holidays, and how we approach training for everyone".

Leicester boss Claude Puel reacted to a 2-1 defeat at Manchester United on the opening weekend of the Premier League season by making four changes to his side for the visit of Wolves.

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic on his goalkeepers: "I have three goalkeepers and I will choose only one - one of them will be in the stand, one will be on the bench and one will be in the goal".

Tottenham want to delay Man City game, host at Wembley - Mauricio Pochettino
But the new stadium may not be completed by then and an National Football League game is being played at Wembley on that date. We're working, the transfer window is still open in Europe and many things can happen.

"We know this team are probably going to take possession off us, and we must be ready to work all together off the ball, and show solidarity and great effort", he said.

The North London side was the only Premier League side to fail to bring in any new faces before the beginning of the domestic campaign, but the likes of Danny Rose and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou have been linked with an exit from the North London outfit.

Pochettino and Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy have been coming under fire as of late for failing to sign a single player during the summer transfer window. If he needs three months, we are going to ask for three years. Our fans understand it's a massive, huge project that will be forever for them and for the club and it's not possible for different things that happen, it's not in our hands. I understand the problems with tickets and money and I feel sorry for them.

"Taking decisions is always the most hard thing. I want to say sorry, but we will try to reward them by winning games".
