Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov has urged the club to bring in new players in order to help deal with the injury problems currently plaguing the squad.
Spurs got off to a good start under Jose Mourinho but the performances and results have dropped off considerably in recent weeks. The defensive problems that have plagued the side for much of 2019 have persisted under the new regime.
On top of those worries, Spurs were hit with a hammer blow on the injury front this week as it was confirmed that both Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko are set for a considerable spell on the sidelines.
Berbatov insisted that Tottenham’s inconsistency at present wasn’t much to worry about and that Mourinho needed time to implement his ideas.
Speaking to Betfair, the Bulgarian said: “Under Mourinho so far, Tottenham have produced some good games, and some bad ones as well, but it is still early.
“The manager needs time to implement his ideas. Now that the transfer window is open there are questions about what they will do, especially with some of the injuries they have.”
Berbatov urged the club to act in the transfer window in order to fill the gaps in the squad left by the injured players.
He added, “It was another blow to hear that Moussa Sissoko’s will be out for a while. He’s been great for Spurs and with Kane, [Tanguy] Ndombele and [Hugo] Lloris also injured, they have some big problems that they need to attend to.
“How are they going to fix things – the transfer window is open, are they going to buy someone or are they going to continue with the squad they have.
“I’m curious to see what happens, but if there is someone out there in the market who can fill the gaps they should go for it, definitely.”

Even without the injury issues, the squad already looked in need of several additions and so there’s no excuse for the club to be idle this month. We need to bring in a striker, a defensive midfielder and potentially a right back if we can. While we probably need a centre half as well, that can wait till the summer.
