Mauricio Pochettino stated that he has no intention of signing a new center back ahead of the coming season for Tottenham.
Pochettino went on to mention that he believes there is enough talent in the youth system to fill in behind likely starters Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld and the very serviceable backup Kevin Wimmer. Those academy options, which include Cameron Carter-Vickers, Dominic Ball and Anton Walkes, have all had a chance to show what they can do in Tottenham's recent 2-match tour in Australia. Ball and Carter-Vickers looked pretty unorganzied against Juventus in the first game but the latter looked better along with Walkes against Atletico Madrid. Speaking of Vertonghen, his ankle recovery is progressing well and Pochettino thinks the Belgian has a chance to be ready for Week 1. Jul 30 - 1:50 AM
