Jurgen Klinsmann sends clear message to Antonio Conte after Tottenham Hotspur’s summer spree
Jurgen Klinsmann has told Tottenham Hotspur that it’s time to win something next season after the club’s impressive summer shopping spree.
Spurs have already signed Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic, Djed Spence, Richarlison, and Clement Lenglet. With six signings already sealed, Antonio Conte now has room to superimpose his identity onto this Spurs team.
Tottenham fans have been buoyed by the club’s transfer business in the past few weeks. The club has arguably had a very good window so far – arguably as good as, if not better than the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal.
However, that is a subjective assessment and it is best to see these new signings in action before submitting a final verdict. However, winning the transfer window isn’t an achievement.
Time to end the drought
Amidst all the talk about Spurs’ impressive summer business, it is easy to forget the expectations placed on this team. Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski were signed in January, which means that Spurs have signed eight players under Conte now.
“The foundation is there now. The quality of the squad is there. The hunger of the players is there. Very well experienced coach/manager with Conte. He knows what he’s doing. He’s got the pieces now in place that he wanted.”
“It’s time to win now, that’s all I can say.”
Spurs are yet to win a trophy since their League Cup triumph in 2008. They came close to ending that drought in style in 2019, but lost to Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final.
A strange and illogical move to sack Jose Mourinho just days before the EFL Cup final against Manchester City last year backfired as well, with Spurs losing to Pep Guardiola’s side at Wembley.

Under Conte, the Lilywhites have stability now. He has had the signings to make a mark on this Tottenham side and show his mettle once again. The pressure is huge on Spurs, but luckily, that is where Conte does some of his best work.
