Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino demands 'more respect' from Antonio Conte

Have any of their top-six rivals actually overtaken Spurs’ for starting XI Kyle Walker comments on facing Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham have offloaded Kyle Walker during the current transfer window, with a record-breaking deal taking the full-back to Manchester City.

Pochettino on Friday responded to the comments by demanding "more respect", as he questioned the 47-year-old's approach to commenting on rival clubs' players.

The last time Tottenham entered August without a single summer signing was 2010 but they have hardly been prolific early buyers in the years since. Their last major trophy was the League Cup in 2008.

But the Argentinian hit back at his opposite number and claimed he does not speak about other clubs and players out of respect.

"That makes me laugh, because I don't know why people are so focused on our players and our club", Pochettino told the media in his press conference ahead of the ICC friendly game.

"The most important thing for us is the opinion of the fans".

"I like to show respect to another way and the people that behave in another way, only I expect the same from the people that compete with us".

Spurs have spent no money this summer, but have received a huge cash injection from the £50m sale of Kyle Walker, but Red Devils boss and reported Eric Dier admirer Mourinho has been complimentary about Tottenham's transfer business - or lack thereof.

"It's true for different clubs when they spend a lot of money that the expectation and pressure is massive, but it's the same for us because it's our own pressure and our own ambition". For us it is the same.

Accentuated by the breezy spending of their big six rivals, Tottenham are now facing mounting pressure to show their ambition by joining the Premier League's feeding frenzy. We will arrive in our moment to move, sure. We have a plan.

The Tottenham manager is eager to retain Dier's services, dismissing rumours of a move to Old Trafford, but insists links between his players and Europe's biggest clubs are a clear sign of how talented his team is.
