Pochettino speaks out on Giovani Lo Celso's chances to start against

Tottenham head Mauricio Pochettino says team's newcomer Giovani Lo Celso is yet to show the qualities that they expect from him. Argentine international has joined Spurs before the transfer deadline from Real Betis. Despite making his debut against Manchestser City at Etihad Stadium, Pochettino says Lo Celso is not ready yet. "I think Lo Celso is a situation that is not going to be easy," he said (via Sky Sports). "He was in extended holidays after the Copa America, he didn't have a proper pre-season and didn't train too much. Then signed for us after a week without training. "He's training well but is still so far away from what we expect from him. We need to give him time. He was involved [on Saturday] and will maybe have the possibility to help the team in some points, but we won't expect too much from him. "We need to not put the responsibility on him, only to improve and adapt himself with us and see. It's a natural process to learn and improve. The moment he will be fit and deserves to play, then sure, he will have the chance like other players." Argentine added. Tottenham will face Newcastle at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium tomorrow.
