Pochettino did not like me at first reveals Alli

Mauricio Pochettino has branded Pep Guardiola "disrespectful" and "sad" for referring to Tottenham as "the Harry Kane team".

The 21-year-old, who has featured seven times for the North Londoners so far this term, with two of those in the starting line-up, has somewhat flown under the radar of most following the successes of fellow team-mates Harry Kane and Dele Alli in recent terms.

"I know Pep", Pochettino was quoted as saying by Goal, "When he's excited after an wonderful win he struggles to keep his position and be a gentleman".

"I always said it was Barcelona or Pep Guardiola".

Guardiola had been asked for his thoughts on the title race, to which he replied that Chelsea and Manchester United would be tough opponents alongside Pochettino's Kane-led charges.

Although Messi was Guardiola's key man, Barça wouldn't have been anywhere near as successful without the likes of Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Carles Puyol, Gerard Pique, Dani Alves and Victor Valdes playing in the same team.

'You're a manager you must show more.

'I was sure he would call me, ' said the Spurs boss.

"Of course. We have a very good relationship".

"I think that many people took those words as very disrespectful for the club and many players that are here at the club".

Plus a little video from the press conference.

"It's a sad comment".

Eriksen is one of the best and most creative midfielders in the world, and the Denmark worldwide will be key to Spurs' chances of picking up all three points against Bournemouth. "To be above this type of comment".

Kane is one of the best strikers in the Premier League and is in great form at the moment.
