Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou while speaking on a fan forum may have sent an indirect message for chairman Daniel Levy.
Ange was hired in the summer and he spent the past transfer window rebuilding the squad.
They signed 7 players including James Maddison, Manor Solomon, Guglielmo, Ashley Phillips, Micky van de Ven, Brennan Johnson, and Alejo Veliz.
The loan deals of Pedro Porro and Dejan Kulusevski were also made permanent.
In terms of outgoings, Ange received a major setback with superstar striker Harry Kane leaving for Bayern Munich. Besides him, the club offloaded a number of players that were considered surplus to requirements either on loan deals or permanent moves.
And despite having a decent transfer window, Ange has admitted that he is not done yet and that he needs more signings to keep building the squad.
He also admitted that the squad right now is no where big enough and if they were competing in Europe this season they would have struggled.
Speaking to the fans, he said (via @ROTS1882):
“We are at the beginning of what we are trying to build, we have had a positive transfer window and we need to keep building the squad. It was never going to happen in one window.”
”I had more targets but I made it hard for Daniel [Levy] as I had few targets. I don’t want any player I want the right players.”
”I want European football, Champions League, to do that we need a bigger squad, if we had Champions League this week we’d struggle but that’s always been the plan. The plan is to grow the squad”.

Ange is a straight forward manager who speaks his mind. And he has been very vocal about needing more signings.
And this looks like another clear message for Daniel Levy that while the club has done a good job backing him financially in the summer, they will need to continue doing so until Ange has built the team he wants.
