Mauricio Pochettino’s verdict on Tottenham Hotspur’s lack of transfer activity


Mauricio Pochettino insists that he is remaining calm over Tottenham Hotspur’s transfer activity this summer.

Spurs and Burnley are now the only two Premier League clubs not to have added to their squad this summer, although Pochettino has admitted that the club are looking to change this.

Both clubs have just 12 days remaining until the Premier League transfer window closes, which the Argentine believes has left the club at a disadvantage.

“We are trying to arrive in the best condition”

Tottenham, under Daniel Levy, have become notoriously late movers in the transfer window and this summer is proving to be no different.

Last summer, Spurs’ first addition came on August 23 when the club announced the signing of Davinson Sanchez from AFC Ajax.

However, this time around, Tottenham will not have the luxury of waiting around that late with the transfer window closing on August 9; before the start of the new season.

Despite this leaving the club at a disadvantage, Pochettino insists that he remains calm over the club’s lack of transfer activity so far.

Pochettino told Sky Sports News:

“The Premier League transfer [deadline] day is so early when you compare it with the rest of Europe. It is not going to help a team like us but that is how they decided to work

“Every season is the same, we talk about adding more quality.

“It is always about [players] in and out. We are trying to arrive in the competition in the best condition.

“There are a lot of things to improve but I am happy in the way we are working. After the World Cup, it is always difficult but we need to adapt our plan for different players.

“England players were involved [until the semi-finals] compared to four years ago or eight years ago [when they were knocked out much earlier].

“But that is a good challenge for everyone.”
