Tottenham: Mourinho gives verdict on draw with Fulham
Mauricio Pochettino has made Dele Alli his first transfer ‘priority’ at Paris Saint-Germain boss, with the Tottenham midfielder reportedly keen to complete the move. Pochettino is still in the early stages of his tenure with the French giants, but did pick up his first trophy winning the Trophee des Champions on Wednesday.
A criticism often levelled at the former Spurs boss was his inability to pick up silverware, but he has instantly addressed that beating Marseille in the final.
Following the win, Pochettino said: “Little by little, the team is doing the things that I ask for. I’ve been here for two weeks and we’ve done a lot of preparation.
“This is only the beginning. We believe that with time and work, we can install our ideas and that the progress will be good because the quality we have.”
As well as improving the players currently at his disposal, he is keen to bring in new additions, with a host of players linked with a transfer.

“He would be very happy to find his manager again.
“He is lacking game time at Tottenham. His relationship with José Mourinho isn’t great.

It was hardly a vintage performance by Spurs either, with Fulham holding their London rivals to a 1-1 draw.
Spurs went ahead through Harry Kane, but were pegged back in the second half through an Ivan Cavaleiro header.
Following the game, Mourinho told BBC Sport: “We have to kill a game and we didn’t but you have to keep a clean sheet, not make mistakes, so it was a very avoidable goal.
“The markers are there, there wasn’t even an advantage in terms of numbers.
“They were intelligent enough to understand the way they play, they change, they become more defensive and they are getting results.
“I thought they were a bit lucky but they were good. We have bad results and we should – and we could have – avoided these results.”
