Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has claimed that Mauricio Pochettino was not adequately backed by the Tottenham Hotspur board in the summer transfer window.
Despite breaking the club record transfer fee with the arrival of Tanguy Ndomble from Lyon, Ferdinand believes that Spurs needed more resources in order to push on and compete for silverware.
Ferdinand also insisted that if he was in Harry Kane’s shoes that he would look to leave North London as soon as he possibly could in order to win trophies and would not be prepared to wait any longer after failing to win any competitive silverware whilst at the club.
Despite having come close to winning the Champions League and Premier League in recent seasons, the BT Sport pundit feels that it would not be enough to keep him at the club.
Crouch: "People forget where Spurs were before Pochettino."
Rio: "If I was Kane, would be gone. I want to win NOW."

While Ferdinand’s comments may come across as ‘selfish’, many players want to win the biggest trophies in the game and presumably, Kane is no exception.
Spurs need to start winning trophies and showing the desire to want to compete, otherwise, the consequences of the likes of Kane and Pochettino departing would be catastrophic.
