Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has stated that he has no regrets over his club not signing any players during the summer transfer window.
Spurs became the first team since the introduction of the transfer window in 2003 to not sign a single player over the summer, although Poch is very much continuing to pull the party line by insisting that he is happy with the squad of players at his disposal.
“We have no regrets, we are happy,” Pochettino told the press ahead of his sides trip across London to face West Ham tomorrow afternoon.
“When we started the season with three games that we won and we were up at the top of the table people were talking in a different way, ‘Oh how clever are Tottenham because they keep all the squad from last season’.
Poch also echoed the recent comments of his Chairman Daniel Levy by insisting that Spurs were unable to sign their first-choice targets and refused to sign players just for the sake of it, while the Argentine coach was also quick to point out that this is, in fact, his clubs best ever start to a Premier League campaign.
“I am never going to judge the words of my boss. It was difficult to sign the players that we needed. That was impossible and in the end, I was happy and am [still] happy with the squad, 25 players.
“After we lost some games all the alarms started to make a big impact in the perception. But I need to remind everyone that this is our best start after eight games, it is the best start in the Premier League for Tottenham.”
