Mauricio Pochettino: 'Difficult for clubs to retain star players'

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy insists that no Spurs players will be sold before their new stadium is finished

In January, Liverpool reluctantly sanctioned the sale of talisman Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, who in turn saw Neymar depart Camp Nou for Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

Pochettino confessed he could not guarantee Kane, who has been with Spurs since he was a kid, from being snatched away one day with Real Madrid being big fans.

Tottenham dominated all through the first half but failed to score.

Tottenham's star striker underlined his value again on Sunday by scoring twice in a 3-0 win over AFC Wimbledon as Pochettino's side eased into the FA Cup fourth round.

"Liverpool is one of the best clubs in the world and look when Coutinho or a player like Coutinho wants to leave", Pochettino said. Look what happened with Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United, with Zinedine Zidane at Juventus, with Luis Figo at Barcelona.

"Liverpool is one of the best clubs in the world and look when Coutinho wants to leave how hard it is to keep your best player".

'If another club pay the type of money they pay, like it was with Barcelona and Liverpool, how you stop it?'

"That is why it is so important how you care for your players - it is why you need to anticipate things".

After making it clear he thinks the club should be fighting for the top four, and also making sure they do well in Europe, it was claimed he does not think winning one of the domestic cups is good enough for the club, yet he says that could not be further from the truth.

Pochettino, though, insists the South Korean's efforts have not gone unnoticed by Spurs' coaching staff, saying: "Personally, us the coaching staff, we've given him [Son] the credit he deserves".

'That's why it's important to work together and try to achieve all we want.

"Harry is so special", said Pochettino. You can not force everyone to stay here. This present in Tottenham, this future in Tottenham, this project is exciting and I hope we spend a lot of time here, try to win trophies and achieve all we want'.
