Mauricio Pochettino: The Premier League has hurt itself

"I can not tell you if we're going to sign one, zero or two or three or four players", said the coach.

"At our training ground they do everything they can to make it as realistic as possible".

"Levy time" and "getting Levy'd" are well-known and affectionate phrases in the Tottenham vernacular, and when the club's supporters enter their new home for the first time in September they will surely be full of praise for their chairman's efforts. We had nine players in the semis, which means of course that our team out here is different to what it would usually be. That is so, so clear. "But I have to say that after all the years I've been in football, money doesn't guarantee you success". 'Of course it's not our fault.

I remember years ago looking at our under-16s, U17s and U18s and knowing there was a golden era coming through.

Luke Amos was one of the Tottenham youngsters to impress during their United States tour and could be in line for a first competitive appearance in a Spurs shirt if the midfielder's more senior team-mates are not ready to start the Premier League season.

If the injuries don't clear up, would you be anxious about playing Luke Amos against Newcastle or putting him on the bench?

"Personally I think it's not right. because we are going to compete in the Champions League and to have 20 days less to sign players". Players like Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen, when they were young, showed desire and energy like the young players on the tour. After four years, you know that we're people who, if we believe in a young player, don't care about experience or not. You've seen Luke Amos play in the last week.

Spurs held on to take a 1-0 victory that puts them on top of the table with seven points having played their three matches.

Premier League power Tottenham Hotspur participated in some skills challenges at Minnesota Vikings training camp.
