Mauricio Pochettino: Fixture congestion is not a concern


Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino says it's a "good thing" to still be in all four competitions this season.

Spurs will this month have back-to-back League Cup and FA Cup fixtures to deal with as well as a tricky Europa League tie against Fiorentina in February but Pochettino is not concerned with all the games coming up.

"It's a good thing for us because we are still in four competitions and it's important for the club," he said.

"I think that we are the Premier League team who have played more official games than anyone, but it's a good challenge for us. It's for that [reason] it's important to have the strong squad, because you need players available to play.

"I'm not worried. We need to work hard and analyse every single decision and after try to keep our players fit for every game. It's important for that to go step by step, game by game.

It's important to analyse every player and every single decision that we take."

Meanwhile, the Argentine says it is unlikely for Tottenham Hotspur to sell or sign new players during the January transfer window.

"I am happy with the all players. There is nothing to report. I am happy with the squad," the 42-year-old explained.

"We have ahead a lot of games. In the next two months a lot of games and we need all players. We need to have all players available, fit, to decide the best selection to play in each competition.

"[As for signing new players] I think it's important to give the opportunity to young players who have the quality to be involved in the first team. I'm happy with the squad and with the young players we have."
