Tottenham's Dele Alli: Mauricio Pochettino was key to signing new contract

  • Mauricio Pochettino looks on at Wembley

"He is a massive part of wanting to be at this club", Alli said after setting up two goals in Wednesday's 3-1 Carabao Cup victory at West Ham.

The tantalising prospect of playing at a brand new, state-of-the-art stadium was not the main reason Dele Alli this week signed a new six-year contract.

"Yeah (credit Pochettino) working with him on the training pitch, the club in terms of going we're gonna go get him, get him, get a manager who is going to invest in the youngsters and obviously work with him on the training pitch, spot on".

"They are confident of course but they are not attached to me only". "But it's not that they are attached to me only". 'It is not a window where you can do many things and not affect the dynamic of the team and the group. "If I believe that Dele Alli is going to sign or a different player is going to sign a new contract because of me, it is a bad feeling or I am so wrong in my head". You need to play for something bigger than a person.

'At 7.30pm on a Saturday I am usually sat on my sofa with my dog Sansa and watching the Spanish league or France, ' Pochettino said. "You need to have something that's more important that motivates you". "When you assess Tottenham, they are in the middle of the journey, in the middle to arrive in the harbour", Pochettino told reporters on Friday.

"It is like you are with your girlfriend or wife and you are holding hands, walking down Oxford Street", he said.


"Your wife is so happy to be with you and feels in love with you".

'If no one looks at you, your wife says maybe she is better with another guy'.

"We are talking about the glory".

Tottenham had made their best ever Premier League start prior to Monday's defeat to Manchester City and they will try and get their campaign back on track against Wolves on Saturday.

"Always we need to know what happens when we arrive". Are we going to have the possibility to fix problems or are we going to manage in the same way?
