Cape Town - Former
director of football Damien Comolli has supported Tottenham's decision
to remain quiet in the transfer market despite the big spending of their
Spurs are yet to spend money on new signings in the current transfer
window, but Comolli believes they are justified in their decision
considering the quality and youth in their starting XI.
“I think Tottenham deserve so much respect for what they’ve achieved,” the Frenchman told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.
“Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino are working with less money than
everybody else and working on a lot smaller wage bill than any of the
Premier League’s top five - we need to give them some credit.
“I’m sure they know exactly where they’re going [in the transfer market].
“The thing with Spurs which is extremely difficult for them to deal
with and is probably very frustrating, is that if you take that first
XI, it’s so difficult to make it better because every player is
fantastic, every player is young…"
He added: “It must be so difficult to find reinforcements for that team.
“Pound-for-pound, every player could play for almost every club in the world, that’s how good that starting XI is.”
Meanwhile Pochettino has admitted that his side is behind the
likes of Manchester, but has assured that
they are in the process of adding more quality.
Guardiola's City has added six signings so far and
showed their quality with a 3-0 win over Spurs in a pre-season friendly
at the weekend.
