Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has hinted at his future transfer policy in the London Evening Standard.
The Tottenham boss has suggested that he will never sign a player if he doesn’t feel they can come forward and offer an improvement on the players already in his academy system.
“If we have in the talent in the academy, we need to give the opportunity. Why find players outside the club?” said the boss.
“We won’t give opportunities to those we don’t believe have the potential to play in the first team, but if they do, I prefer to give them the chance. For me, there are many players here who have that potential.”
The comments will come as a boost to those Tottenham Hotspur youngsters looking to break into the side and get a chance at White Hart Lane, but they may not please some fans.
Spurs have promoted effectively from within and the likes of Nabil Bentaleb, Ryan Mason and Harry Kane are all good examples of players who have proven youngsters can make it at the club.
However, the recent figures published via slideshare show that Spurs are inside the top 20 for the wealthiest football clubs in Europe.
Therefore, it’s reasonable for fans to suggest that the club could bring in some high profile players before the end of the current transfer window to give the side a boost over the second half of the season.
One of Pochettino’s best qualities, stretching back to his days at Southampton, is the way he works with and develops younger players and any fans who feel the club should spend a bit of cash, simply need to trust him.
