Mauricio Pochettino says Spurs 'are not a charity'

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says he cannot pick players out of "charity" if they are no longer performing at the level he expects. Spurs look set to sell a former mainstay of the team Victor Wanyama while Jan Vertonghen has surprisingly been omitted from the opening two games of the season, with Pochettino partnering Davinson Sanchez with Toby Alderweireld in defence. Vertonghen's absence from the team has been a constant point of conversation, but Pochettino says the reasoning is very simple.
