Mauricio Pochettino has held talks with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to discuss his increasing frustrations at the state of the squad.
Spurs currently sit 14th in the Premier League and have won just three of their 13 Premier League matches.
Pochettino believes the club are now paying the price for a failure to reshape his squad during the summer and his discussions with Levy during the international break focused on his grievances.
Spurs reached the Champions League final last year.
Pochettino wanted to sell Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld while Christian Eriksen sought his exit, but all three remained with the club.
A number of players have become frustrated by Pochettino's discontent and negative comments in the media.
