Mauricio Pochettino reckons that it’s quite hard for the players to walk into a club in the middle of the season and get going straightaway. Every club has different culture, different style of play, the teams have different formations. So the players gradually understand it with time and then ease into playing and performing for the club. It happens over time and not straightaway.
That’s why it’s always good that you make your signings in the summer rather than winter because if you buy someone in summer, the player gets that time during the pre-season to settle within the group and adapt himself to the club’s brand of Football. When he comes in winter, he doesn’t have that time.
