Finish the transfer window after tomorrow, I think Tuesday we are going to make a big party and celebrate.”Because I think it was my worst period after five years in Tottenham.”Dane star Eriksen, who has been targeted by Juventus and Real Madrid, bagged the opener in the thrilling draw against Spurs’ North London rivals.And Pochettino said afterwards that it is now “nearly impossible” for the 27-year-old midfielder to leave the club.He said: “His mind is clear that he wanted to play.”It’s nearly impossible for something to happen [with a transfer], that’s why it was clear.”There are still hours, one day and I want to say that it is impossible but it is going to be difficult.’BIG PARTY AND CELEBRATE'”I think nothing is impossible in football. I am optimistic.”The most important thing is [the next] 24 hours and [we] hope that everything will be clear for everyone.”Christian Eriksen had a big performance. The whole team had a very good performance.”I enjoyed it a lot. You want to win, but you hope to play these kind of games every week.”Pochettino – who said the £600million doubt incurred building the new stadium means Spurs can’t splash out on transfers – added that the club will only now finally feel settled after months of uncertainty surrounding.He commented: “The team wasn’t settled and I told you from the day one when we started the pre-season in London and then we moved to Singapore.”That is why I wasn’t happy, why I was a little bit worried about the situation because we knew very well what is going on.ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big oneLatest Spurs newsHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summer”But now I am optimistic and happy.
