Southampton boss Pochettino: No time to consider new signings

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino insists he's happy to go with what he has.

The Argentine was beaten to the signing of Inter Milan midfielder Philippe Coutinho by Liverpool.

But he insists: "Honestly, I do not feel frustrated by the idea of not having Philippe here, I knew that the chances of seeing him at Saints were few, but in general I have not had much time to think about new signings.

"I'm happy with the squad as it is. We all know Cou is a quality player, but we have not had the time to take into account other factors when signing such a player."
