Poch begs Levy for Cash

Chelsea beat Spurs

A Champions League final, fourth place in the Premier League and absolutely no money whatsoever spent last season.

Imaging what manager Mauricio Pochettino could have achieved with some money?

Well, things could be about to change as according to an interview with TV3 in Catalonia, Poch has made it clear that is essential his Spurs side is reinforced this summer.

“It is imperative that this year we strengthen the team” the Spurs boss was quoted as saying and it is clear for all to see that after two barren windows, now is the time to push on.

Lucas Moura was the last permanent signing Tottenham made and that was all the way back on the 31st January 2018 and another transfer window with no signings is unthinkable.

Largely because it would make up Mauricio Pochettino’s decision on his long-term future at the club.

After transforming Spurs into European heavyweights, the 47-year-old Argentine has understandably been a manager in demand and had twice come close to ditching North London for Madrid.

However, the measure of the man has shone through and true to his word, he has stuck around to continuing building his ‘project’.

But surely the man has limits.

Having seen the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City splash the cash last season and go on to great success, Tottenham’s lack of any activity must be particularly galling.

Yes, there is the new stadium the club have built which needs to be financed (and what a Stadium it is) but few could have steadied the ship to the level Pochettino has and now the man deserves his managerial reward in the way of a blank cheque.

Kieran Trippier and Cristian Eriksen are both reportedly close to the exit door, so reinforcements are a must but who?

Barcelona winger Malcom, Jack Clarke from Leeds and Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele are all rumoured to be on their way to Tottenham this summer.

The time is now for Daniel Levy to get his cheque book out otherwise it could prove to be not just a player exodus this summer, but a managerial one.
