Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he intends to try and recruit new players in January.
After becoming the first club in Premier League history not to sign any fresh faces during the summer since the inception of the window.
Pochettino has warned that the club risk ‘playing with their destiny’ by standing still if they fail to sign anyone during the next transfer window.
The manager wants investment in the squad to keep up the pace with the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea who have all invested heavily.
Tottenham currently find themselves in fourth place in the table, having enjoyed our best ever start to a Premier League campaign after amassing 21 points with eight games played and are just two points off the top.
Speaking after the 1-0 win at West Ham United yesterday, Pochettino told the Evening Standard:
“If you ask me I am happy, I am happy with the result but I think you cannot play with the destiny and you need to do the things properly,” Pochettino said.
“I don’t want to say that it is not doing things properly to not sign but, we need to try again in January or the summer to try and sign if we want to move on the team and the club.
“Now it will come, January, and we are going to try to sign and then, if it is not possible, we are going to tell you it was not possible to sign but I think, not only us, all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad, it is necessary and if today happens that, we can say ‘okay well done’.”
