Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino wants the youngsters in the academy to step up to the plate like Harry Kane and Dele Alli did. The injury to the England striker has led to calls for Spurs to go out and buy a replacement but Pochettino wants to see youngsters come through the ranks at the club and make themselves stars just like Kane and Alli did.
He said: “We have the possibility to create our new star through the academy. “You know different names, I don’t want to say as that might not help, but of course that is our objective – to try to create the new star of Tottenham, to find him here in our academy, would be the most exciting thing.”
Pochettino has a track record of turning prospects into world-class players as Kane himself was a young striker still making his way when he arrived at the club four and a half years ago.

He has also helped nurture Dele Alli into one of the best young players in Europe and he wants to continue looking to the future. “We look back four and a half years ago, we did not find here Harry Kane or Dele Alli as big stars,” he added. “When we look back, and we compare with another big club in Europe, the two most important players in the squad were building here in Tottenham. “How many clubs did the same as us in the last four or five years? That is massive. It is a massive thing to be satisfied about, for us and our fans. “You were able to create two and build two big star players like Dele Alli and Harry Kane. Why not make the effort to add a few players more? And to help the club step up? “Not all is possible because of the period that we built these two stars, in the same moment we are building the new stadium. “We need time. It’s about time. That is why our wish or our hope is the moment we finish the stadium, we can pay the debt quickly and start to invest with these younger players who can be big stars of the future. That is the dream.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
