With reports saying that Tottenham are opposed to Steve Holland being the assistant manager with the English national team, Pochettino, however, has said he has no issues with the likely appointment of Holland as the assistant to Gareth Southgate, who is expected to be named permanent England boss.

He said: “No, after Gareth Southgate got the job in the national team, we had some meetings with Steve Holland and we talked a lot about what happened last season,” Pochettino said.

“After that, we created a very good relationship. It’s not important for me and Tottenham. It’s more a decision of the FA. But I don’t know where that news started. I can say to you we have a very good relationship in that. We have some friends — him with some staff from Tottenham. Nothing to say about that, it’s all about his decision and the FA’s. All decisions the FA take are good for us.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
