Ex-Spurs manager assures that Poch has more than ‘limited funds’

Tottenham Hotspur have now gone over 12 months without purchasing a single new player, the first Premier League club in history to do so.

The last incoming star was Lucas Moura from PSG way back in January 2018.

The only piece of transfer business this season for Spurs has been the sale of Mousa Dembele to China, with various other outgoings on loan.

This means that Tottenham’s squad has actually been trimmed through this campaign, despite it lacking some depth at the start of the season.

This has led many to claim that Pochettino is operating on limited funds due to the expensive new stadium project in North London.

However, ex-Spurs boss Tim Sherwood has rubbished claims of limited funds, as he argues that Pochettino has been given money and time to bring in a load of players in his five years.

He also says that Poch is happy with his squad and is unlikely to leave the club.

Sherwood said (talkSPORT): “I wouldn’t agree with ‘limited resources’. It’s obviously not the same as Man City’s resources, but who has that?

“He’s signed 20 (sic) players since he’s been at the club, so they’ve given him an opportunity to build a squad and he’s happy with the squad he’s got.

“If you ask me, ‘Would he want to leave?’ I’d say no. I think he’s happy with the squad he’s got.
“We’re comparing him with Liverpool and Man City which is wrong.

“They’re having a bad run of it but I’ve still got faith in the squad and the quality of the players and the manager.

“They will still finish in the top four. It’ll be difficult because they’ve still got to go away to Manchester City and Liverpool. It’ll be a very tough run-in.

“It’s fine margins and if they finish outside the top four, you have to say it’s been a bad season.”
