Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Alan Sugar has revealed what he is aware of, regarding the club’s spending power and how Daniel Levy could be willing to spend.
It is now infamously known that Tottenham were the only club in the Premier League who failed to secure any new signings during the summer transfer window in 2018.
That decision has not necessarily seen Spurs go downhill this campaign as some expected and in fact the opposite is what has happened with a place in the top four of the league virtually secured while the team is one win away from becoming champions of Europe.
There is a feeling amongst the fans that the club will be reluctant to spend in the transfer market once again this summer.
However, Alan Sugar is actually claiming that Levy is willing to spend but Pochettino is the one who is reluctant to buy new players.
Talking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show (Thursday, talkSPORT, 8.30am) Sugar said,
“What a game, unbelievable, unbelievable. First off, hats off to Liverpool. Then in the morning we were saying we’d got to do the same.
“Then we go 2-0 down and the players have got Instagram on their phones and they’re browsing photos. Then the second half comes and the rest is history.”
Sugar also heaped praise on Mauricio Pochettino and said, “You saw the emotion of Pochettino and it was unbelievable. Real men cry.
“You’ve got to admire him. He’s been with us a while, he came from Southampton, people might have been skeptical. His ethos is to bring young players through. There’s been a lot of talk about Daniel Levy having his wallet shut because of the new stadium.
“I know for a fact that’s not true. Pochettino doesn’t want to buy people and if he doesn’t want to buy people he won’t. And he gets rid of people who he doesn’t want to work with. I hope we hold onto him.”
