Jose Mourinho backs Jurgen Klopp’s transfer dig at Chelsea

As reported by the Metro, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has thrown his weight behind Jurgen Klopp in his comments against Chelsea.

The Liverpool manager had taken a swipe at Chelsea following their lavish summer transfer window. Klopp stated that some clubs in the Premier League can bypass financial limitations courtesy of being owned by oligarchs and countries. (h/t Metro)

The accusation appears to be leveled at Chelsea and also Manchester City – Liverpool’s closest competitors for the Premier League title.

Jose Mourinho believes Tottenham Hotspur cannot afford to throw money around

The German has now found an ally in Mourinho. Speaking at a press conference, the Spurs boss openly brought up Klopp’s comments before throwing in his own views. (h/t Metro)

“The other day Jurgen was saying Liverpool wasn’t a club of oligarchs and a club that belongs to countries. We are the same. So we are not the kind of club that can go to the market and spend a fortune on players.”

While Liverpool have made just one signing, We have spent £30m to bring in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty, and Joe Hart so far this summer.

Frank Lampard has enjoyed a summer of extravagance at Chelsea

This pales in comparison to that of Chelsea who look set to cross the £250m mark. Spurs are still in the market for a striker. Given that Harry Kane is our lone senior striker, the signing should be seen more of a priority rather than a luxury. (h/t Metro)

“We are all working hard, I want to make it very, very clear, to get good balance and that good balance would be to get one more striker.”

Unlike Chelsea, we are in no position to splash large sums of money. Our signings so far this summer have been shrewd rather than expensive.

A fully-fit Spurs squad has the capability to take on the best and it is time Mourinho shows the league how he earned his fearsome reputation.
