Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho has once again dismissed suggestions that he is looking spend big in the January transfer window to bolster the squad.

While the Portuguese manager enjoyed a great start to his Tottenham career, recent performances and results have been well below par thus raising questions about the current squad.

Some reports over the last few weeks have claimed that the 56-year-old could spend big in January in order to strengthen some areas of the squad (talkSPORT).

However, Mourinho has denied that the club are targeting major signings this month and instead insisted that the only thing he needed was time to work with the players on the pitch.

Tottenham have had a busy schedule with a game nearly every three days since Mourinho arrived at the club. So, he and his coaching staff haven’t had too much time to prepare the team for certain fixtures.

Following the defeat against Southampton on New Year’s day, when asked if the squad needed to strengthen the squad in January, the Spurs head coach told BT Sport (01/01/2020 at 15:00 pm – as relayed by the Express), “Come on, we need time to work. We need what we are not having.

“We need to focus on what we have. We are not looking to be the kings of the market. We are going to work.

“We see the bad result today which is the continuity of the last year. For 12 months, it has been very difficult to get results away from home. It is difficult. The work is not about buying, it is about working with the players on the pitch.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Given how hesitant Mourinho has been to discuss his January plans, I am sure that the club has asked him not to talk about transfers to the media. I am also convinced that we will spend in January as there is no way Mourinho would have agreed to take the job if he hadn’t been promised funds.
