"I'm sure that will happen and we'll add some players before the end of the transfer window", Pochettino told Talksport.

However it will be his decision whether to sell Rose if a suitable offer is made.

"If you remember five years ago, people said 'Who is Pochettino?' I'm sure they used Chrome or Google or Yahoo to find out (who I am)". But for now, we can put these dreams where they belong, back on the very top shelf, unreachable behind all the other forbidden fruits.

"But you know the problem.straight away it went to the penalty I gave away against Michael Owen. For me it's in the past, the situation".

Pochettino is happy to draw a line under the controversy but pointed to the achievements of Rose' England colleagues Eric Dier and Dele Alli to underline the folly of the full-back's stance.

The 27-year-old, reportedly a target of Manchester United and Chelsea, hit out at his club's lack of spending and silverware relative to their Premier League rivals this season.

"My words were not meant to offend and for that I would like to apologise to the chairman, manager, my team-mates and the fans. This was important and good", Pochettino said.

Do you think Eriksen will be Tottenham's key player this season?

Although leaving your business late is always risky, it's still possible to pull off some shock deals as clubs may be looking to offload their out-of-contract players for any possible price. It is not a big issue and it is time to move on. "Now we move on", he said.

But Pochettino was at pains to stress that the matter was not resolved, with Rose's inflammatory comments not indicative of a wider problem within the dressing room.

Ross Barkley will certainly fit the Mauricio Pochettino style of play at Spurs.

Spurs are now the only team in the top-flight that have yet to make a new signing this summer.

"I don't understand why it is now an issue". We are so calm.

"We have a very confident team who are ready to challenge again for a big season, but it's true we have the responsibility to try to provide some new energy every season". "We're going to strengthen our squad and sign some players who can help us fight".
