"And of course, I am guilty because I saw that, but I can not change that situation".

The Spurs manager would not disclose what sanctions the club had in place for Lloris after he pleaded guilty at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday and was fined £50,000 (€56,000) and banned from driving for 20 months.

"First of all I want to say that they deserved the victory", Pochettino said. But I think the most important thing is everyone can make a mistake.

We know Harry Kane well and have worked with him the last more than four years - and we know this is not a situation that worries us.

"I respect all opinions and in football, everyone has their opinions", he said, via Goal.

One suggested source of Kane's relative struggles is his quick return from an ankle injury back in April but Pochettino insists he is satisfied with the contribution of a player who is perhaps a victim of the high standards he has set for himself.
