Mauricio Pochettino says he is too busy trying to win the title to care about a dig from Chelsea regarding Tottenham’s development of English players.
Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo claimed Tottenham’s success with young English players has been overstated.
Emenalo argued that for all the “hoopla” surrounding Spurs’ youth policy, Harry Kane is the only “key player” to have been developed by the club.
Pochettino has nurtured 11 of England’s last 19 debutants, during his spells as Spurs and previously Southampton manager, and the Argentinian did not feel the need to defend his record.
“I’m focusing on trying to win the title and I did not hear,” Pochettino said.
“I don’t need to speak about the obvious things that happen at Southampton and Tottenham. I am just focusing on our job.”
