Tottenham boss Pochettino not ruling out new deal for Alderweireld

Tottenham boss Pochettino not ruling out new deal for Alderweireld

Tiredness could be an issue for Son, who played eight games in 26 days for his country, but his return after playing just ten minutes of Tottenham's league season so far will be greatly received by Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

A breathalyser test on the scene found Lloris to have been over twice the drink drive limit.

The head coach added: "Of course he's the first that regrets everything, and all that happened yesterday is not good". He said he is guilty of this situation and is responsible.

"The most important thing is everyone can make a mistake and he is suffering a punishment that society translates to him". We can all make a mistake. But of course we're not God, that we can judge people. "He apologised to everyone - the staff, the club, the fans, us - and he said "any decision that you take gaffer, or the club, I think is fair". Only we need to try [to ensure] that he understands and he understands that it was a mistake.

Asked if he will stay as captain, Poch replied: "Of course". As a man you need to recognise your mistake.

He is now out of action with a thigh injury sustained during his side's victory at Manchester United. Because he is a clever, he learns and now he is going to move on'.

"I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my teammates, the manager and all of the supporters", Lloris had earlier said.

'And of course it's more complicated today to be a manager than 20 or 30 years ago'.

"It's not that I want to justify him, it's only because the period during the season always change". "I am disappointed because we are going to miss him for this game and maybe the Champions League game against Inter Milan [on September 18]".

Son gives Spurs another option in attack, while Pochettino defended Harry Kane, whose form has been criticised in a start to the season when the World Cup Golden Boot victor has seemed to lack sharpness. As he is such a big player and everyone expects something from every action, so his expectations are different'.
