Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour has claimed that he is surprised that Tottenham Hotspur have failed to back Mauricio Pochettino in the transfer market.
After making it to the final of last season’s Champions League, Parlour believed it was an opportunity for the club to try and close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table by adding some quality players to their ranks.
In reality, Spurs found themselves in fourteenth place in the Premier League table heading into the international break and are already eleven points behind Manchester City in fourth place.
Parlour made references to the development of the new 62,062 capacity seater stadium and how it has affected Arsenal when they moved from Highbury to the Emirates with limited transfer funds.
With reports that Pochettino’s future in North London is uncertain (Telegraph), Parlour admits he would be amazed if Daniel Levy allowed a manager of the Argentine’s calibre leave the club.
“I’d be amazed if they let a manager of his calibre go.” ❌
“You have to replace him and it is a gamble who you bring in.” 🎲
