Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham can be the next great youth academy

Mauricio Pochettino insists that there are more talents to emerge from Tottenham's well-stocked youth academy.

Mauricio Pochettino believes Tottenham can take over West Ham's mantle as the "academy of football" and insists there are more young gems to come from the Spurs youth system.

Tottenham's resurgence under Pochettino this season has been spearheaded by home-grown talents like Harry Kane, Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb, as well as players brought to the club at a young age including Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Eric Dier and Christian Eriksen.

Spurs host West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday and Pochettino's current crop carries echoes of the Hammers squad that once brought through the likes of Frank Lampard, Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole and Michael Carrick.

"We hear in the past that West Ham had a lot of players in the academy who played in the first team -- why can't we be like that?" Pochettino said.

"Our philosophy is to give young talent a chance if they deserve it. Why is not possible for us to have a lot players in the team from the academy?"

Tottenham are optimistic about the futures of a number of other academy players including Josh Onomah, 17, and Harry Winks, 19, who have both made their first-team debuts this season, while Alex Pritchard, 21, has impressed while on loan at Brentford.

We are very proud [of the young players] and the supporters feel that," Pochettino said.

"We have an amazing academy, we just need to give the young players an opportunity to play if they deserve it.

"We feel very good at the club because the academy players have talent and in the future why can't we produce more players?"

Pochettino added: "Are there more I expect to come through? Yes, we detect some players who have the ability to play in the first team in the future.

"It's not because their passport is English, it's if they have the ability to play, they deserve the opportunity."
