I am contented with my squad – Pochettino

After a disappointing afternoon at St Mary’s stadium, Tottenham Manager, Mauricio Pochettino insisted that he has a solid squad and thus refused to comment on reports linking Bordeaux winger, Malcolm to Spurs.
The in-form 20-year old midfielder has scored seven goals in Ligue 1 this season has been linked to more than three top clubs this transfer window but Pochettino declined to comment on any imminent deal.
Spurs suffered for lack of creativity for the major part of the game in the absence of Christian Eriksen in their midfield and Brazilian, Malcolm will definitely add that spark to their midfield.
However, Pochettino told Sky Sports after the game that reports linking the Bordeaux player to Spurs are only rumours and he will not speak on them.
“I am contented with my squad. We are open to quality players, but it is difficult in this transfer window.”
Harry Kane scored his 99th Premier League goal to cancel Davidson Sanchez own-goal which they conceded early in the first half, but he went on to miss a golden opportunity late on which would have sealed all three points for the North Londoners.
“I think it was an even game and a difficult game to play,” Pochettino added. “The pitch was in a difficult condition. It was tough. A battle. It was fair, the result.
“We struggled to play. It was in possession, we made mistakes which allowed them to play. To win the game we should do better and play better. It wasn’t great.
“We tried to be more aggressive in our offensive phase and to link better Kane and [Dele] Alli behind. This allowed us to be more aggressive in transition and use our full-backs going forward. We had a massive chance with Harry Kane at the end to win the game.
“We still have the possibility to fight [for the top four]. Southampton is in a relegation battle so it is not easy, they fight to survive. Every ball, they were aggressive. But it was our mistake to not win the game.” The Argentine concluded.
