Tottenham have not made a single signing for almost 18 months now and in that time have managed to finish 3rd and 4th in the league on the top of reaching their first ever Champions League finals.
As it happens to be, Lucas Moura who was the player to be signed by the club scored a golden second-half hattrick away at the Johan Cryuff Arena to drive Spurs to the UCL finale against Liverpool on June 1st in Madrid.
Match of the day host and a closet Spurs fan, Gary Lineker has now urged the club to back Poch in the summer transfer window if they are to compete with the European elite regularly.
“I interviewed [Pochettino] a couple of weeks ago for the Premier League Show; it was the first time I’d actually met him'” Lineker said to The Times.
“He’s a very engaging character, clearly massively knowledgeable, insightful on the game, and he’s clearly one of the best managers or coaches in world football.
“But they do need investment; he said that to me himself. And he needs to be backed. I suspect, if he’s not backed, they’ll probably find it quite difficult to keep hold of him. So it really is a seminal moment for Tottenham.
“They’ve got to decide what they are. Yes, they’ve got a great new stadium, which perhaps halted expenditure to a degree, but whether they’re going to move forward and be a club that can compete in other Champions League finals, rather than just a one-off against all the odds, remains to be seen.”
Tottenham seems to have Poch’s back with them reportedly interested in signing Everton star Andre Gomes and Fulham sensation Ryan Sessegnon and also keeping an eye out on wantaway Crystal Palace star Wilfred Zaha.
