Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has told Daniel Levy that he will be happy with whatever squad the chairman gives him to work with this season.
Spurs have already added two new players to their first-team squad this summer after signing Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke on the same day, however, Clarke was then loaned back to Leeds United (BBC).
Tottenham have also sold a first-team star this window, with Kieran Trippier moving to Atletico Madrid (BBC). Danny Rose is also rumoured to be on his way out of the club after Spurs left him out of the pre-season tour squad in order to pursue an exit.
The Daily Mail listed eight players Spurs would attempt to sell earlier this month, including Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier.
With Tripps gone and Mousa Dembele leaving last January (Mirror), the first-team senior squad is now actually smaller than it was last season, when Spurs struggled due to vast injuries.
Poch has this to say on Daniel Levy and further signings (Football London): “I told Daniel during the flight from London that I will be happy with the squad that you are going to provide me to work with. I’m always happy. I’m a happy man, working with 25 players, always. We are going to have 25 players to work with. Always I was happy and I’m going to be happy. That is my nature.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
While I see what Pochettino is trying to do here, I was far more confident in Tottenham’s transfer window when he seemed to talk a lot about the next chapter and a different way to run the club. In my opinion, the squad is nowhere near where it needs to be to challenge Man City and Liverpool next season.
