Tottenham midfielder Bentaleb grateful for Pochettino support

Tottenham midfielder Nabil Bentaleb is grateful to manager Mauricio Pochettino for his backing this season.

The 20-year-old has been effective enough this season in central midfield that he has been preferred to more established players such as Etienne Capoue and Paulinho.

"I work hard in training and he trusts me," Bentaleb told FourFourTwo.

"He [Pochettino] gave me a chance. It's going very well. I'm hungry to learn and he's teaching me every day."
