Tottenham Hotspur explains no-show in the transfer window

Tottenham Hotspur explains no-show in the transfer window

10 Aug 2018, 12:40

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochetino has revealed the reasons behind their no-show in the just conclude transfer window.

Spurs became the first club in England to fail to bring a new player during the Summer since 2003 but Pochetino pointed out that the fact that they were able to keep their best players informed, partly, their decision to keep a low profile this time around. 

The Argentine further pointed out the effects of Brexit that has made player prices go up by a further 30%.  Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min will remain with the club as they look to go back to White Hart Lane after a full season at Wembley last time.

"Building a new training ground, finishing this summer the lodge was a massive investment. Building a stadium that is nearly £1bn. That is true, don't believe in £400m, that is the truth. And then with Brexit, it is worse because the cost is 30% more, and then keep the best players. For me [that] is to be brave." Pochetino explained.

We cannot sign for the sake

"Of course maybe in the mind of everyone, they will say, 'Oh Tottenham didn't sign', but to sign for the sake of signing? You need to respect all the opinions but of course we are a club that our decision was not to sign, (even though) it is the fashion to sign or because we are the only club in Europe that has not signed players." he added.

The tactician remains hopeful before the start of the season saying the club is heading towards the right direction and has promised to take responsibility for the club's performance.

 "I am responsible for what I told you or what I tell you but I cannot be responsible for what you believe that I wanted to tell you." the tactician concluded.
