Mauricio Pochettino wants greater emphasis placed on procuring top young talents

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has called for the club to better utilise their resources in the academy and youth recruitment to build a squad for future success, reports the Standard.

Given Spurs can’t match the Premier League’s elite with their spending, Pochettino wants the Londoners to instead focus on signing hot prospects from around the world to build a competitive team able to challenge the best in years to come.

“Tottenham have spent a lot of money on the academy and creating a magnificent training ground and now we need to get the benefit from that. We have great talent in the academy, the staff are unbelievable people who work very hard and who have a passion for football. We need to give the vehicle for these young players to arrive in the first team,” said Pochettino.

Tottenham have brought through a number of academy starlets, some of which left the club, and some who are currently on the fringes of the team. They also recently appointed Paul Mitchell as head of recruitment to scout out the brightest young talents.
