Former Aston Villa and Liverpool forward Stan Collymore suggested on talkSPORT the statement he feels Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino will be making to chairman Daniel Levy.
Collymore claims Pochettino has the look of a downbeat man despite the recent win against Newcastle United, as he’s watched Tottenham’s challenge for a position in the top four fall apart.
“Spurs are going to have to go again, Pochettino looks a little bit downbeat at the minute, he’ll be going and knocking on Daniel Levy’s door and saying ‘I want to bring my own players in’,” said Collymore.
Some of the signings Tottenham made with the money generated by the sale of Gareth Bale were questionable.
Pochettino wasn’t at White Hart Lane when it was splashed on improving the cash, but there are still elements of the regime which saw the suggestion of targets who haven’t worked out as key Tottenham players.
Pochettino has to be given full control over who comes and who goes at the club and he needs to be backed by the chairman over the summer.
Tottenham are going to be under massive pressure for a place in the top four over 2015/2016 and Pochettino deserves the chance to iron out any discrepancies he sees in his squad, in order to give himself a more complete variety of options.
He can’t be undermined and needs backing because there are areas, which need to get better if Tottenham are to maintain a challenge which could see them secure a Champions League spot.
