Tottenham Hotspur break unwanted record as they fail to sign in the summer window.
Tottenham Hotspur broke an unwanted record as they failed to secure a single signing in the just concluded summer transfer and are set to begin the new season the same way they finished the last one.
Maurico Pochettino had said he is happy with the club, despite no new faces for the new season but how far can the Argentine go with the current squad he has at hand.
Tottenham Hotspur finished third last season behind Manchester united and run away leaders Manchester city. city added a new attacking talent in Rihad mahrez and despite United’s failed transfer they have new faces in Fred, dalot and Grant. Fourth placed Liverpool brought in four new players, while chelsea and arsenal signed three and five players respectively.
With the additions by rivals clubs, it’s most likely Tottenham would be fighting for a place in Europa league by the end of the new season. Maurico already had a taste when he lost three first team midfielders to injury in the preseason, something he is likely to experience more often in the new campaign.
The manager would have to rely on the young lads for support during bad times, hoping they could deliver.
Tottenham Hotspur may have succeeded in extending contracts for Harry kane, Son and a few more but fact is the club is likely to fail to challenge in the new campaign and could possibly end up as Europa league contenders by mid season.
