- Match Analysis
Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino believes that despite the lack of summer signings, his team can be strong this season. Spurs will be heading into this season with the same team that helped them finish 3rd last season.
Pochettino said, “I don’t have news now and to do so before the deadline would be so difficult. But I am happy to keep all the squad together. I think the club made a massive effort to try to extend contracts with people like Harry Kane. I think the club is doing an amazing effort to try to finish the stadium as soon as possible, and the lodge is finished at the training ground. It’s a massive effort from the club.
Of course, people in football find it difficult to understand that Tottenham didn’t sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently. If we are happy with our squad and cannot improve our squad, sometimes it’s better to keep our squad together. Now we have players who compete at a high level in the World Cup, we have the captain who lifted the trophy. I am sure we are going to be better, no doubt about that.”
Tottenham begin their Premier League campaign against Newcastle United on Saturday at St. James’ Park.
