Mauricio Pochettino remembers old roommate, idol Diego Maradona, fondly

Victor Wanyama says Tottenham won't be out for revenge against Chelsea at Wembley. Wanyama was speaking at Leagoo's unveiling as Spurs' official mobile phone partner.

Mauricio Pochettino still struggles to find the right words in English. The Tottenham manager has been discussing the problem of signing players and competing with Spurs' wealthier English rivals, topics he has no difficulty articulating. But now he looks to his assistant and unofficial translator Jesus Perez for help.

"It's so difficult in English to express myself and my emotions," Pochettino says. He is thinking back to 1993, when he was a 21-year-old defender at Newell's Old Boys. That September,...
