Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham Hotspur need time to improve and set a style of play.

The Argentine has endured a mixed start to his Spurs reign following his appointment in May, winning six of their opening 14 Premier League games.

We have put together a lot of concepts, introduced a lot of new things and when you play, play, play, maybe you need a clear week to improve your style

And Pochettino, who succeeded Tim Sherwood at White Hart Lane, is calling on Spurs fans to remain patient as Tottenham gradually make progress.

“We try to set that standard on the team,” Pochettino said.

“It is not easy, it is a process, we need to train at high tempo to run like that on the pitch.

“It is a slow process – not just a transformation in your body but also in your mind.

“This is why need time to improve and we need time to set a style.

“We have put together a lot of concepts, introduced a lot of new things and when you play, play, play, maybe you need a clear week to improve your style.

“Sometimes it is good to play three games in a week but it makes it difficult to coach the team.

“So we need more time to put our style in practice.”
