Tottenham boss Pochettino admits Lo Celso frustration

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says fans will have to wait to see Giovani Lo Celso at his best.

Lo Celso joined Spurs on Transfer Deadline Day on loan from Real Betis but the club have an option to buy the 23-year-old. But it seems as if the Argentina midfielder is not up to the required fitness levels for Pochettino.

"Lo Celso is a situation that is not going to be easy," Pochettino said. "[He] was in extended holidays after the Copa America, he didn't have a proper pre-season and didn't train much. Then signed for us after a week without training.

"He's training well but is so far away from what we expect from him. We need to give him time and we won't expect too much from him."
