No money at Spurs for players – again
Poch told the Evening Standard:
“I don’t have any money!” Asked if the club planned to spend, he repeated the gesture.
He added: “One thing you need to understand is that Tottenham built the training ground and one of the best stadiums in the world with our own resources.
“Daniel is doing that with our own resources. It’s not like people came from I-don’t-know-where and said, ‘Here’s £500m for the facilities. And what does the manager want? Five players? Okay — we’re going to invest £500m more.’ It’s important to make that clear when we compare Spurs with another team.
“We’re doing everything with our own resources — that’s why it’s massive credit for Daniel. To be competitive like we are, it’s tough. It was tough for Arsenal in a different period.”
Much of this presser is spent defending having won nothing.
Quite how Mauricio can keep straight face when saying that Hotspur Way et al was paid for with ‘our own money’ beggars belief.
We’ve more debt than Manchester United.
No wonder Poch is joking about having no transfer funds – Levy’s blown it all on artisan food offerings.
Woodward must be licking his lips.
