Mauricio Pochettino Says Spurs Need To Spend

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has indicated his future with the club depends on the club’s approach to the summer transfer window and in order to improve they need to loosen the purse strings.

Pochettino joined the club from Southampton in 2014 and the club has had a net spend of just £50million since then.

In the previous two seasons they have spent £184.59million on players which is less than Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool over the same period.

The manager plans to speak with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy over future plans for the club and his place within after Sunday’s win secured a third successive top-three finish in the Premier League.

‘Today 100 per cent (I will be manager) but tomorrow it can change,’ he said after Spurs beat Leicester 5-4 on Sunday at Wembley, thanks to doubles from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela, and a Christian Fuchs own goal.

‘It is not in my hands, it depends on my boss. Maybe I am talking too much, maybe I should breathe.

‘But don’t take this in a negative way, this always happens at the end of the season, the manager speaks to owners thinking how to improve.

‘We need to talk a lot between us and the club. That’s a bit up to Daniel and the club.

‘After four years we need to assess that period and try to win big trophies. We need to review things.

‘We cannot think we are the cleverest people in the world winning trophies on small money. We need to think the reality is different.

‘I think Daniel is going to listen. In this situation you need to be brave and take risks. Until today it was so difficult to talk about the future. Now we need to decide the way to operate.’
