Mauricio Pochettino has told Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembele to forget their future and concentrate on Tottenham.

The North London club was prepared to unload the trio this summer, but eventually retained them after failing to find the right replacements.

Both Dembele and Alderweireld will now execute their contracts in the past 12 months as a result and will be able to talk freely with foreign clubs since January, while Rose will be linked to Tottenham until 2021 after signing a long-term contract two years ago.

But Pochettino believes that all three are at risk of losing focus and has asked them to forget about their future and contribute to the Tottenham season instead.

The Argentine said: "If we have the whole team thinking as individuals and not as a collective, you can not succeed. That's the key this season. "

"It's the human nature that you always take care of yourself, but once you can not change anything, then you need to change your mindset and think about the team.

& # 39; I am the boss and if I expect you to do something, then you must provide it. You must show your commitment, from the field of play, from the bench, sometimes from the outside. That's what it means to be a professional.

"We are always open to finding the solution when possible, but when it is not possible, why create a problem that can only disturb or not help the club and its teammates?

& # 39; If you do not like your manager, at the moment you can kill your manager, kill your manager.

"But not when it's not possible, because then you're only hurting yourself and then your company and the fans who pay your salary every month."
