Mauricio Pochettino 'disappointed' with Spurs' transfer activity
At the start of the season, Tottenham Hotspur attracted a fair amount of attention for being the only club among the top six to have not made any signings in the summer transfer window.
Currently, with the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli injured, Spurs seem to be in dire need of reinforcements. However, Spurs failed to make a single signing yet again, and manager, Mauricio Pochettino is rather disappointed with the state of affairs, as per Goal.com.
Speaking about the matter, he reportedly said:
“Of course I wanted to strengthen the squad but if we cannot sign, I need to stick with the project of the club.
“Of course I am disappointed because we are in a very good position and maybe with a help from some players we can remove the excuse that we are not a real contender. But we are there, we are close, in a very good position and we will fight to the end to be as high as we can.
