Harry Redknapp says Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t want to sign new players at Tottenham
Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has said that current manager Mauricio Pochettino is happy to work with what he has got and doesn’t want to sign new players, despite lack of movement in the recent transfer windows.
Spurs became the only club to not sign any player over the summer transfer window 2018, creating a Premier League history in the process.
Pochettino has stated that he would dip in the market during this month’s window, but won’t spend money just for the sake of it.
Tottenham have a chunk of injury problems in their squad, with Harry Kane and Dele Alli out long-term, while Heung-Min Son still not 100% to feature for the team. Moussa Sissoko and Ben Davies are also injured in midfield and defence respectively.
While the speculations link the club with potential new arrivals, Harry Redknapp feels differently. Talking to TalkSport, he said: “I don’t think Poch wants anyone.
“He’s not been desperate. People tell me they [the club] have come up with players but he likes a small squad and he’s happy. He feels like he’s got players there who can come in.
“Harry Kane is irreplaceable, obviously, but he’s lost very key players, you take three players like that out of any team.
“Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura have come in, there are not exactly fools, these are players that cost £20m or £30m, they are not cheap players.
“You would have still thought there is enough cover there to pick up a couple of more results, though.
“It’s difficult to replace people – where are you going to find a top class player who is going to come in for just four and five weeks, but when Harry Kane is back fit you’ll be on the bench? It’s very difficult to find somebody.”
