“What he wants”- Jenas tells Spurs board what they must do to make club title challengers

Tottenham Hotspur backed to become title challengers in one or two years on one condition

Tottenham Hotspur have been backed to become title challengers in one or two years on one condition by their former player Jermaine Jenas. He played as a central midfielder for the Lilywhites between 2005 and 2013, scoring 26 goals and assisting 22 times from 201 matches during that period.

Antonio Conte was appointed as the Tottenham boss mid-season, but he has done a fine job since taking over the wheel from Nuno Espirito Santo. Daniel Levy has arguably made one of the most ambitious decisions of the past few years by bringing in Conte. However, the club chief has been given certain instructions to follow to take advantage of the world-class coach in their camp.

Speaking in a live discussion on BT Sport (h/t Football.London), Jenas has conveyed that Levy must support the Spurs manager through signings in the upcoming transfer windows. The ex-midfielder added that only then can they become genuine title challengers, or else they would fade as happened in the past.

“If they give him what they want, they’ll have the ability to challenge for a league, whether that’s next year or the year after. If he gets them players in, there will be a team here who will be in and amongst it. For Tottenham fans, there’s nothing that’s happening in the past that will make you believe he’ll get what he wants.”

Obvious decision

The North Londoners must learn from the mistakes they have made during the days of Mauricio Pochettino for a better future. Pochettino developed a great crop of players with limited freedom, but we failed to take advantage of the golden generation.

The now-Paris Saint-Germain coach apparently had no say in the club’s transfer policy by his own admission. That resulted in the team bringing in players that perhaps Poch may not have wanted, or not pursuing players that the Argentine may have desired.

Conte has come in and turned things around with the declined squad that is available in his hands. However, he has done wonders with just one transfer window by using Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur to uplift us to the current situation.

However, Levy must not stop backing the 52-year-old boss as it is imperative that the squad is constantly worked upon to get to the desired level. That may not be possible without more signings which the club would be wise to make in the coming transfer windows.

Conte has done a wonderful job following the winter transfer business, so one would be wise not to bet against him if he receives proper backing from the board. Whether the management would consider their former player’s advice to support the boss or not remains to be seen.

Two areas that fans would agree need strengthening this summer are the centre-backs and perhaps a backup number 9 who can compete with Harry Kane, partner him in the attack, or act as his understudy.
