Tottenham first Premier League team to fail to make one summer signing

Belgium v England 3rd Place Playoff- 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia How can Hibs replace a player like John McGinn?
Sergio Cook | 10 August, 2018, 13:03

Spurs were open to offloading others, such as Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose, with Pochettino not keen on having unsettled players on the fringes of his squad who could potentially be disruptions as the season goes on.

In addition to being the first Premier League team in 15 years to make a summer signing, Tottenham are also the only club in Europe's top five leagues and England's top four tiers without a new player this summer.

"That is true, don't believe in £400m, that (£1bn) is the truth!"

"Of course people in football find it hard to understand that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently". That is a drama, I feel sorry for the English people.

"We believe a lot in our players and why not repeat a similar season like past year or the season before, and with more experience?"

He added: "Of course maybe in the mind of everyone they will say, "Oh Tottenham didn't sign", but to sign for the sake of signing?"

"And then with Brexit it is worse because the cost is 30% more, and then keep the best players. It's a fearless decision".

Tottenham kick off their Premier League campaign away against Newcastle on Saturday, and Pochettino is assessing the nine players who reached the World Cup semifinals and only returned to training on Monday.

Mauricio Pochettino is not expecting Tottenham Hotspur to make any signings before Thursday's deadline but insists he is happy with his squad and that the club can make forward strides this season. If we have all the squad thinking as individuals rather than as a collective, you can not achieve what you want and can not succeed. You need to be clever in how you settle your principles, your strategy and to try to win.

Speaking about any possible incomings, the Tottenham manager said in a press conference: "I think it's so hard now. That is the key this season".
