Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has lauded the club’s bravery after they neglected to make any player signings this summer, leaving them with the same squad that finished third in the Premier League last term.
Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish long looked to be the only piece of notable business that Spurs might complete, but a deadline-day move failed to materialise
However, Pochettino failed to see that as a failure, per the Mirror‘s Adrian Kajumba:
“What the club is doing is showing it is so brave.
“Building a new training ground—finishing this summer, the lodge, was a massive investment. Building a stadium—that is nearly £1billion. That is true, don’t believe in £400million, that (£1bn) is the truth! And then, with Brexit, it is worse because the cost is 30 per cent more.
“And then we keep the best players. For me, [that] is to be brave.
“Of course, it’s difficult to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn’t sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently.”
