Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are unable to match Liverpool’s impressive transformation.
The Anfield outfit have invested heavily in their squad in recent times including the arrival of Virgil van Dijk who has helped to shore up their defence.
Liverpool’s spending power have turned them into European champions at the expense of Tottenham as well as being genuine title contenders.
Pochettino compared his squad with that of Liverpool following Jurgen Klopp’s arrival and pointed out that the Reds side they faced in October 2015 are no longer at the club while Spurs still have eight or nine who were involved in the match.
Tottenham have invested heavily in their new stadium project which means they are unable to compete financially in the transfer market with some of the big hitters in the top six, including North London rivals Arsenal according to Mauricio Pochettino (The Sun).
The Spurs boss told The Sun when making the comparison with Liverpool: “When Klopp arrived in October 2015, more than one year after me, when we drew 0-0 here, not one of their starting XI of players is there in the starting XI today.
“And the substitutes are not there. If you compare with us, we have eight or nine players still in the starting XI. Look at the difference.”
