Pochettino’s response to being asked if Alderweireld will be at Spurs next season

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has spoken once again about the prospect of Toby Alderweireld leaving the club in the summer transfer window.

The Spurs boss was not able to spend in the transfer market during last summer as the club became the only top flight team in England to fail to sign any new players in a post-season transfer window.

Several stars were handed new contracts after the World Cup and the future of a number of them were sorted out.

But there are still doubts remaining over the future of players like Alderweireld, who have continued to be linked with a move away from north London in the summer.

Into the final two months of the season, Pochettino has been asked about what is next for the 30-year-old and the Tottenham boss insists the club still has him in their plans.

“It’s the same as myself. Last season, how many rumours about were there him and others? And at the end we are all here.” he said, as quoted by ​Football.London

“He’s in our plans, of course and then, here in Tottenham the circumstances about what you want, your agent, your dad, your family, your club, your manager, your chairman.

“It is about many things together in the same place take the best decision for everyone. But it’s not only a decision from one side, it is not always. There are a lot of components that make the best decision for the club and in this case the player.”

Tottenham will be hoping the Belgium international sticks around for another season at least after the move to a new stadium.


  1. I really think we should sell him to highest bidder at this point.
    Sanchez can replace him. enough is enough !!

  2. Nooooo no need to sell Toby he is the best center back no one to replace him Sanchez is always making mistakes

  3. We need to keep all. A top team needs strength in depth! In case of injury, congested fixtures, tactical flexibility etc.
