Mauricio Pochettino praises his Tottenham squad for their attitude in training following his appointment as the club's new manager

Mauricio Pochettino has praised his Tottenham Hotspur squad for their attitude in training following his appointment as the club’s new manager.

The former Southampton boss took charge of his first training session last Saturday after succeeding Tim Sherwood at White Hart Lane and has been pleased by his players’ response to the new regime at the north London club.

“We are very happy with the players and we’ve enjoyed the training,” Pochettino told Spurs’ website.

“It’s a difficult period for the players because we need to work hard but there has been a great atmosphere.

“It’s important for the players to get to know us and for us to get to know them and at the same time we’ve also started to introduce our philosophy and style into the group.

“The players have responded well and have trained hard every day.”
