I loved these quotes. As Liam said, the difference from that prick at Man United is striking.https://www.football.london/tottenham-hotspur-fc/news/pochettino-luke-amos-harry-kane-14975948
if the injuries don't clear up, would you be worried about playing Luke Amos against Newcastle or putting him on the bench?
After four years, in my fifth year, you think I'm going to be scared to play him?
Is he ready then?
that's different. The young players that maybe still don't have experience in high competition, the compensation is about desire and energy. Players like Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen, when they were young, showed desire and energy like the young players on the tour. After 4 years, you know that we're people, who if we believe in a young player, I don't care about experience or not.
Football is about energy, about desire, about respect for yourself and your teammates, being professional. Of course, Luke Amos is a good example. He played three games of 90 minutes. He's not so young - 21 - but maybe he doesn't have Premier League experience but his performances in the three games showed it's not a problem to put him to play. Maybe he's going to play ahead of some senior players. I'm more than brave and if I believe in some players I go with all the consequences.
When can you expect the World Cup players to rejoin training?
Monday, this Monday morning they will start their job on the training ground.
Can you say if you expect them to play against Newcastle?
First we need to assess them on Monday and see what happens. Maybe some players look after themselves and they've been training, maybe others rest, we need to see and of course we are not going to take risks if some players are not ready to compete, to play, they are not going to be involved at the weekend. That is so, so clear.
