Jose Mourinho Spurs manager

Mourinho rules out 'massive changes' at Spurs this summer despite disappointing season

Jose Mourinho says there will not be ‘massive changes’ at Tottenham during the summer transfer window despite the club’s disappointing season.

The north London side currently sit seventh in the Premier League following an indifferent campaign, five points adrift of Chelsea in the race to secure a top-four finish and Champions League qualification.

Spurs have finished in the top four in each of the past four seasons but face the possibility of missing out on a return to Europe’s elite next season, however, despite their struggles Mourinho insists there will not be wholesale changes to his first-team squad.

The Portuguese secured the signings of Gedson Fernandes and Steven Bergwijn during his first window in charge, in addition to making Giovani Lo Celso’s loan from Real Betis permanent for a reported fee of £27.2m.

The Spurs boss is likely to once again invest in his squad during the summer, though ahead of tonight’s FA Cup fifth-round tie with Norwich, Mourinho insists his squad does not require major surgery as he bids to bring silverware to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

“Massive changes? No. Not massive changes,” Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference.

“First of all because that is not what we think we need. Secondly because of the profile of the club. Third because of what the market is. Year after year after year it is more difficult.

“So, I am not thinking of an overhaul. Of course, we need to make our squad better, that is obvious.”
