Pochettino rules out January spending

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino is adamant the club do not need to reinforce the squad in the January transfer window.

With a combination of quality signings from abroad and players from their own youth academy, the Saints have largely impressed over the last couple of years and they currently occupy the third position in the Premier League standings.

And while some people believe the squad lack the strength in depth, manager Mauricio Pochettino is perfectly happy with the current state of the squad.

“We don’t see that as a problem. We have a lot of young players coming from the academy that are pushing really hard,” the Argentine told reporters.

“They are making a case for being in the senior team. Players like Sam Gallagher and Harrison Reed, very exciting players.

“So in that sense we are not worried about the depth of our squad because we have a lot of young players that guarantee us a very good future in the immediate future. We are covered in that sense so we are not worried.”

Southampton have become famous for their youth academy that has produced the likes of Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, while current captain Adam Lallana has just been handed his England debut.

And with team’s impressive displays in the opening exchanges by no means a surprise, there may be value in odds of 7/2 offered on the Saints to achieve a top 6 finish.
