Transfer: Pochettino welcomes Dele Alli to PSG

 


Paris Saint-Germain new manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has said that Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli is welcome at the club.

Pochettino said this at a press conference on Tuesday ahead of his side’s away Ligue 1 clash with Saint-Etienne on Wednesday, while responding to speculation linking Alli with a move to PSG.

The Argentine, who replaced Thomas Tuchel at the Parc des Princes, coached Alli during his time at Tottenham.

Alli has been strongly linked with a move to PSG since Pochettino took charge of the French Ligue 1 champions last Saturday.

“I think every single club is different,” Pochettino said when asked about a possible move for Alli.

“I know very well that Paris Saint-Germain is one of the biggest clubs in the world, and of course Tottenham today is too. It’s an amazing club and of course, we (had) unbelievable memories there.

“It’s difficult to compare because we are in France and Tottenham is an English club, and it is difficult to be objective with Tottenham.

“It’s still in our heart, and we love Tottenham, and I think it’s a relationship that is never going to stop. Always we are going to think (about the club).

“But I think now it’s time for us to be focused 200% on Paris Saint-Germain and of course the situation like you are asking me, to be honest, we are not talking about that, because we haven’t had time since the second of January when we came to Paris.”

“It has been a crazy period for us, trying to adapt to a new club – a lot of meetings, training sessions and to prepare for the game tomorrow,” Pochettino added.

“That is the principle objective – to win tomorrow and perform in the way that we want.

“There are a lot of things that we have done, but I think we will have time to talk [about transfers] in the future.

“Like I said before, this is one of my first press conferences and, for sure, we are going to have time.

“But any big player in the world, I think, in Paris Saint-Germain, always is welcome.”

Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemate, Ngozi Nlewedim, popularly known as Erica, has berated fellow housemates, Laycon, for gossiping about her with the others.
