Pundit Tony Evans has suggested that Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino will have to be allowed to spend in the transfer market this summer in order for the club’s progress to continue beyond this season.
It is now infamously known by everyone that Spurs were somehow the only club in the Premier League who did not manage to secure the signing of any new players during the summer transfer window last year.
There were several complaints from fans at the time with the chairman Daniel Levy being accused of failing to show enough ambition to keep the team on par with the rest of the big clubs in the category of Europe’s elites.
Despite reaching the final of the Champions League this season and finishing in the top four of the Premier League, there have been many suggestions that more spending will be needed in the transfer market.
Evans said on talkSPORT’s Weekend Sports Breakfast on Saturday: “For all it’s great that they’ve reached the Champions League final, they’ve looked really leggy in the past few weeks, they’ve looked as if they’ve run out of steam.
“He certainly needs backing in the transfer market, because that’s a squad that needs freshening up, and probably needs three or four new players”.
“Pochettino is hinting at some ‘back me or I’m off’ sort of comments.”
“They have reached the #CL final but they are so leggy.”
“He needs 3 or 4 new players in the summer and needs backing.”@TonyEvans92a on the summer transfer window for #THFC. pic.twitter.com/ysW3twLNj8
