“Always the club sign players, not Mauricio. Of course, in that structure, sometimes you have more important parts in your opinion, or the club take more a important percentage than your opinion, and sometimes no.
“That is why I think that when someone signs for the club and is successful we share it between all of us, but when the player fails always it’s accuse the manager. I am responsible.”
Tottenham broke their transfer record to sign midfielder Tanguy Ndombele for a projected £65 million from Lyon this month and also bought winger Jack Clark from Leeds for around £10 million in what was their first signing for 517 days.
With Fernando Llorente, the Spain striker, leaving the club last month when his contract expired and Janssen having been sold, Pochettino could be light upfront.
Llorente is understood to have been offered a new deal but on significantly less money than his previous contract with the club, which was reported to be worth £100,000 a week. But when asked about the prospect of the Spaniards returning before the close of the Premier League transfer window a fortnight on Thursday, Pochettino said that question needed to be directed to others at the club.
“I don’t know,” he said. “I am not the person you need to ask."
Tottenham are closing in on a deal to sign from Fulham and Pochettino is also hoping Levy can agree a transfer with Real Bertis for midfielder Giovani Lo Celso.
Pochettino said he was confident he will be happy with his squad come Tottenham’s opening game at home to Aston Villa on Aug. 10.
“I never work with expectations or the perceptions, I work with the reality,” he said. “I told you bef Frenchman is attracting the interest of Manuel Pellegrini as he looks to build a team that can qualify for Europe next season.According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Hammers want to sign the central midfielder for roughly €4 to €5million.The 30-yore I think I’m going to be happy with the squad that we are going work with at the end of the transfer window. I am not focused on that, I am very focused in trying to help the team and players to improve and try to perform and get the results that we want.

“Of course our next goal for the next season is to first of all see how our squad is going to be and then to settle our goals and try to perform in the best way.”
Tottenham were beaten by Liverpool in the Champions League final last month but Pochettino is still hoping for improvement next term.
“Of course for us to be better than the previous season is going to be difficult because to arrive in the final of the Champions League is the best thing you can get in football, no?” he said. “Better is to win and we didn’t win.
“This season we are going to try again and hopefully we can arrive again, but I don’t know. I cannot talk too much about other teams.
