Tottenham's Son Heung-min is Premier League player of month

Posted May 19, 2017

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino and his players applaud the fans at White Hart Lane as part of the Farewell Ceremony (pic: PA Images/Nick Potts). We took a big risk on Dele Alli and now he is a massive player, one of the most important in England. "That has to motivate us to hopefully be out there next year lifting the Premier League together".

There have been reports that clubs in the Premier League and around Europe are interested in Kane, along with the likes of Dele Alli and Toby Alderweireld.

Sugar, though, is confident that if star players do move on, there is more of the same coming through the club to step into their shoes because of the emphasis on development.

Tottenham will also undertake a 10-day pre-season tour to America at the end of July, which includes friendlies against Paris St Germain, Roma and Manchester City. It has been Tottenham's brilliant unbeaten home record that has put them in title contention and with a season at Wembley to come, the team need to improve their away form if they are to make up the expected shortfall in home points.

Everton (who are also heading for a huge new stadium) are just about hanging on to the coat tails of 6th placed United, but the 16 (SIXTEEN!) point gap (as it stands) to West Bromwich Albion tells us all we need to know.

Over the course of two terms, no team has acquired more points than Tottenham.

"It is important to be honest with the person that signed you three years ago and invited you to a good project that you shared and agreed to".

Despite all their promise, Tottenham are yet to win a trophy under Pochettino and their last major prize was the League Cup in 2008.

"It's true we can not change the table but it's important for us now to try to win, for us to compete". "I am sure next season we will try again to fight".

As for this season, he admitted Sunday's victory over Manchester United in the final game at White Hart Lane remained his stand-out moment. Kane never stops talking about how much he loves Tottenham and wants to stay forever.

"I will stay here next season", Pochettino said. "Then try to add more quality, maybe, if we are capable of finding this type of player that can help us for the next season to play better, to be better and try to compete better in different periods of the season".

One position where it is unclear who Spurs will select is at right-back, as both Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker are out. We will see what happens now after Sunday.
