Tottenham will 'deserve' trophies when they come, says Mauricio Pochettino

Dele Alli of Tottenham Hotspur during the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 Second Leg match between Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus at Wembley Stadium

Fears that the England worldwide may miss the remainder of the campaign have since been allayed, though, as the return of scan results confirmed minor ligament damage in his right ankle, likely ruling him out for just over a month.

A number of players who are slightly older than Alli have established themselves in the big leagues, such as Manchester City's Leroy Sane, but Pochettino insisted: "Last season, who was the best?"

According to Hamann, however, Bayern are keen to turn to Pochettino if Heynckes made a decision to end his interim term at the Allianz Arena at the end of the season.

Pochettino suggested that Alli, who felt tightness in his groin at Bournemouth on Sunday, may not start Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea City.

The striker is expected to be back in training at some point next month, although the derby with Chelsea on April 1 is likely to be too soon.

However, Pochettino should be interested in one player he worked with during his time as Southampton boss, with midfielder James Ward-Prowse potentially ideal for Spurs.

"For me the most important thing is how you're going to use the space in every single game, trying to defeat the different tactics that the opponent is going to use".

"The reality is now he's in his crutches and a boot and we need to assess him day-by-day and we'll see the reaction". Will do everything I can to get back out there asap.

"We can not put a day or date on him starting to participate in training with the team".

"Of course, it's not a long-term injury and it's easier to keep your form, and that helps you to be fit quicker when you fix your problem".

The Saints are in a perilous position just above the Premier League relegation zone, and they risk losing the likes of Ryan Bertrand, Oriol Romeu and Mario Lemina should they go down.

Plenty of focus has been put on Spurs' inability to lift silverware over the last couple of years, when they have been heralded as one of the best teams in England.
