Jose Mourinho wants more signings at Tottenham next summer
Tottenham were able to land several quality players in the summer window, with the likes of Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon and Matt Doherty arriving at the club.
Spurs have also signed a couple of youngsters for a brighter future in Carlos Vinicius and Joe Rodon.
However, Jose Mourinho isn’t resting on this transfer window and wants more signings at Tottenham. Spurs weren’t exactly active in buying players during Mauricio Pochettino’s last 18 months or so, but Mourinho wants more.
The gaffer was speaking to FourFourTwo (h/t Football.london) and suggested there was a lot of work still to be done:
“More than the squad, it is time to work and time for evolution.
“It is time to affect the team not just the way we play, but the way we think – sometimes the way we think takes more time than other things.”
More players needed
The Portuguese has been backed well by Daniel Levy in the transfer market but Mourinho brought out the example of Jurgen Klopp.
The Liverpool manager has spent in every transfer window since arriving at the club. Liverpool have made some astute signings such as Andy Robertson but they have also spent big when needed.
The Reds landed Virgil van Dijk and Alisson for huge sums, and that has seen them transform into title winners. Mourinho claimed he was happy with his side but needed a few more touches in the coming summer window:
“I am very happy with the squad but, of course, next summer we will need to give a couple of touches but this is what you always do to improve the squad.
“Look at Liverpool, for example, when Jurgen [Klopp] has been there. How many transfer windows? He went to the market and improved the team.”
