"All people here need to feel they can be part of the team, and help the team any time the manager commands".

The club were due to move into their £800million arena next month with their first game a mouthwatering clash against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool on September 15.

"It's the only way we can pay all the effort they are doing and they are going to do for the club".

"We're open, I'm open, and if some players are not happy because they need to play or believe they can play more in another team, or need to change the environment or need a new challenge or motivation", Pochettino told reporters at a press conference.

"He's a little bit behind the rest but we're working and I'm going to decide if he's a player that can stay with us or maybe if we believe he can play more, to find maybe some alternative for him to play more than last season", Bruce said. "We're going to try to reward them by winning games".

"If Mourinho leaves Old Trafford, then I can see United coming knocking for Pochettino because it feels like he has been on their radar for a long time, and I can understand why he would be seen as the right man for the job".

The club are now listing the venue for the City match in October as "tbc", leaving some hope that the ground may be ready by this date.

Drugs, particularly fentanyl, are now deadlier in the USA than either HIV, vehicle crashes or guns, the report said. Emergency responders spent several hours today working to treat the victims and transport them to the hospital.

"If it is not possible to play in the new stadium of course it is (best) to find a way to play in Wembley, because I think to play in another place - three stadiums in one season - would be too much".

Meanwhile, with the Premier League transfer window closed, Spurs can no longer add to their squad - but their players can still move overseas, and Pochettino said there could be departures.

"I always try to be transparent and honest, and I don't know".

Pochettino said: "We need to be all together".

"Maybe we need to adapt, the day after the National Football League game, maybe the pitch is not in the best condition, but we need to make the effort and to play because to find another date would be hard".

Asked if the lack of a fixed home ground could hurt his team's preparations and levels of performance, Pochettino said. A year ago we were talking about Wembley not being a nice place for us but in the end I think we had the third best home record in the league.
