Former Premier League manager Neil Warnock explained on talkSPORT that he was never convinced by any of the players Tottenham Hotspur brought in, using the cash generated by selling Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.
Warnock has praised Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy for getting a good deal out of that situation, but has suggested that Tottenham aren’t going to miss the majority of the players who have already left the club this summer.
The likes of Etienne Capoue, Paulinho and Benjamin Stambouli have all moved in, with Warnock at odds as to how that situation cam about.
“Daniel (Levy) left it right to the very last minute to thwart Real Madrid and they got every penny they could – They never ever looked like it, I was never ever convinced by any of them really – It’s strange how things happen like that,” Warnock said on talkSPORT.
Important for Spurs to learn a lesson
There is a very clear argument to suggest that Tottenham misspent the Gareth Bale money. However, they need to learn a lesson from the saga.
Mauricio Pochettino has brought in some very good players since he’s been at the club. They are young players with a chance to adapt to his methods and players who boast longevity.
It’s going to be interesting to see how they all settle in and play over the start of the Premier League season, but they have a chance to play together and grow up together over an extended period of time.
That should help Pochettino to further refine the squad and reliability should be created in different areas of the team.
