“Now is the moment for Harry to recover his energy, to rest. When he comes again we will have time to speak. We will have good conversations, but now is the moment for Harry to rest and to prepare for what’s coming.
“And I’m looking forward to him joining the group and starting working together.
I didn’t speak to any of the players in the national teams, no one. Because I believe if I was on the other side it would be disrespectful.
“I think the players in the national team should be focussed on the national team. He has a hard job to do, totally committed to the national team, obviously, so this is why I decided not to speak to any of them.

“I will speak when they arrive. This is the right moment in our own building, face to face, sitting down and to prepare our future together.
“Harry’s one of the best footballers in the world and he’s a Tottenham FC player.”
