Danny Mills explains why Pochettino has a tough summer coming up with Tottenham
By Harvey Byrne
BBC pundit and former Premier League full-back Danny Mills believes Mauricio Pochettino is in for a tough summer with Tottenham due to the quality of player he’ll be able to attract.
The north London club already have a strong starting eleven with the likes of Hugo Lloris, Kyle Walker, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose, Dele Alli and Harry Kane considered among the best in the league.
However, it is thought that Pochettino will need to continue strengthening his side if he is to get the north London club competing for both the Premier League title and Champions League crown.
Now, Mills believes that the Argentine has a difficult few months coming up as he will have to add quality players to his team, who may not be guaranteed starters each week and could become disgruntled.
“If you’re bringing in a top name, are they happy to sit on the bench,” told Mills speaking on Match of the Day 2 on Sunday afternoon.

“Centre-backs as well. Those areas as well. It’s a very delicate balance of bringing in quality, who’s also going to be happy not to play every single week. Somehow he’s got to do that if they’re going to challenge for the Premier League, Champions League and obviously domestic cups as well.”

Pochettino struggled with his signings last summer with trio Vincent Janssen, Moussa Sissoko and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou all failing to contribute to Tottenham’s impressive season.
However, he will certainly be hoping for more success this time around and the addition of Victor Wanyama to the eleven has so far proven to be a great decision for just £11million.
