​Pochettino admits Tottenham squad unsettled over transfers

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is not happy about the atmosphere around his squad.

Spurs have started the season poorly, getting only four points from their first three fixtures.

They suffered a stunning 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday - thanks to a goal from Joelinton.

And Pochettino spoke about problems within the squad, due to possible player departures before September 2.

"I cannot find excuses because the transfer window is open," he said to reporters after the game.

"It doesn't justify that performance today or the result. But we have an unsettled group for different reasons and different personal circumstances.

"Of course, I am going to be happier in 10 days after Arsenal when the transfer window is closed and we know we have the players until it opens again in January."
