As the NFL rolls into town with its traditional locker room access for the media, Mauricio Pochettino admits he is no fan of cameras in the dressing room, having experienced it as a player and manager.
The Chelsea manager has had to fend off questions this season about the dressing room visits of Chelsea's principal owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, with the Argentine being diplomatic about their presence.
But he is adamant that he and his players would not welcome the intrusion of cameras into their inner sanctum, as is commonplace in American sport. Jacksonville Jaguars take on Atlanta Falcons at Wembley on Sunday and then have two more games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the next two weeks.
Reporters will be welcomed to interview players in the locker rooms as usual, and the prospect of similar access in the Premier League has been raised again.
Premier League clubs met last Thursday to discuss negotiating terms for the next round of domestic TV rights, which go out to tender later this year and will be decided by the end of the season.

Pochettino was known to be unhappy with the access-all-areas policy for Amazon Prime's cameras when he was at Tottenham for part of their 'All or Nothing' series, and is against a similar move going forward.
He reveals he was happy to speak to the media in the dressing room when he was a young player in Argentina, but says times – and players – have changed since then.
