Pochettino upset Spurs failed to compete for Coutinho signing

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was left frustrated with their failure to land Bayern Munich midfielder Philippe Coutinho last summer.

Barca paid £145m to sign Coutinho from Liverpool but were willing to let the Brazilian forward leave the Nou Camp on loan during the transfer window.

He ended up joining Bayern for the season but The Sun says Pochettino was keen to bring him to north London.

The Argentine had previously worked with him while he was in charge of Espanyol.

And he feels as though the 27-year-old would have made a big difference to his Spurs rebuild.
