Mauricio Pochettino: Happy with backing of Southampton owner

Saints travel to West Brom on Saturday looking to build on their impressive return to the Premier League last time out, and the Argentine coach is setting no limits to the club's ambitions.

"I think the sky is the limit," he said.

"We can't really set ourselves any limits, we have to think positive and be ambitious. We need to think that we need to win every single game and that every game is a final.

"We will go out looking to win on Saturday and the game after that and the game after that."

Southampton have added the likes of Dejan Lovren and Victor Wanyama to the squad and Pochettino is happy with the backing he has received from owner Nicola Cortese.

"I'm very happy with the support the owners have given me," he added.

"I'm very happy with the work that Nicola has done and the signings that have been made. Hopefully they will enable us to achieve the goals that we want to achieve for the club.

"I'm satisfied with the players we have in the squad - I'm happy how they have performed in pre-season.

"But if there is anyone out there who can make us better in general then they would be welcomed in to the squad.

He added: "We've very cautious with our work and there has always been a very good communication between me and Nicola when we have made decisions about buying players.

"It is clear there are some weeks left in the transfer window and we might be looking at a couple more players but again we will be keeping that in private."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
