Video: Carragher critical of Spurs for not signing Kane back up

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has expressed his surprise that Spurs haven’t yet signed a striker this month with just a matter of minutes left until the transfer window shuts.

Harry Kane is expected to be out of action until April after picking up a hamstring injury against Southampton on New Year’s Day (the Sun).

While the Lilywhites have been linked with several strikers this month, no move has materialised so far and Jose Mourinho has admitted that no other new additions are likely before the transfer deadline (Football.London).

While Carragher insisted he understood Spurs’ difficulty in adding another centre forward as no player will want to come in and play second fiddle to Kane, he opined that a club of Spurs’ stature needed at least two strikers.

Watch what the Sky Sports pundit told Football Daily:

While the club’s inability to add a single striker this month is baffling, perhaps Mourinho decided that he didn’t want to sign someone just for the sake of it. None of the names the club were linked with this month really stood out as great fits for Spurs and perhaps the club have hence decided to reassess the situation in the summer.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Maybe whilst he was out there trying to get Bale, Levy should have popped to the other side of Spain to try and bring back Messi. He couldn’t have done any worse!

  2. Ha and I see Jose having a little dig at Levy over the eriksen deal. Saying how great Levy was getting the eriksen deal done however no back up striker. Says a lot about Levy enic and the board. No ambition to win anything just screw the fans every time. Spurs are a club run for the sole ambition to make money without winning anything. Crap owners who care only about themselves.
