Speaking to Sky Sports at today's Premier League launch Pochettino reiterated his aim to only add players to his squad who can challenge his first XI.
All the noises out of the club have been rather muted in truth, with the club yet to make a single addition to their squad all summer long.
The left back signed a £65,000 a week deal last September and feels he has "one last" big contract in his career at 27-years-old - but Sportsmail's Carragher mirrored the words used by Rose upon learning some signings made under Daniel Levy.
Manchester United refuse to go above £90million for Gareth Bale

Benitez has not lost any of his previous eight Premier League home games as a manager against Spurs (W5 D3 L0). Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham have turned him into the world class player that he is. Personally, the standout moment for me is the emergence and maturing of Harry Kane into one of the best strikers around. It's a big challenge for us to make Tottenham a winning team and build a strong mentality to challenge the likes of United and City, who are spending a lot to create a winning team.
What are reasonable expectations for Tottenham Hotspur in 2017-18, in the Premier League, Champions League, and domestic cups?
Building his team around England stars Harry Kane and Dele Alli and, with Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Son Heung-Min all influential in their own right, Pochettino has assembled a group capable of beating any side in the country on their day. Add to that the lack of activity in the transfer market compared to that of their rivals and it could be a hard season for Tottenham. They haven't spent enough and if it wasn't for the fans I'd tip them to go down.
