‘Pochettino doesn’t want any new players at Tottenham’, claims Harry Redknapp

first_imgTottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is content with his current squad and does not want to sign any new players this month, according to Harry Redknapp.Spurs have been linked with several potential signings over January, as they consider bringing in cover for injured duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli.The England stars are both expected to be out until March at least, and they have been sorely missed in a miserable week for Tottenham, who were dumped out of the EFL Cup and FA Cup in the space of four days. 3 moving on targets TRANSFER LATEST ON TALKSPORT.COM Harry Kane and Dele Alli are huge misses for Tottenham With a week to go until the transfer deadline, time is running out for the club to make amends after their barren summer and strengthen the team.But while transfer reports continue to link the club with potential new arrivals, former manager Redknapp believes Pochettino is not so keen to add to his squad.“I don’t think Poch wants anyone,” Redknapp said on Monday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“He’s not been desperate. People tell me they [the club] have come up with players but he likes a small squad and he’s happy. He feels like he’s got players there who can come in.“Harry Kane is irreplaceable, obviously, but he’s lost very key players, you take three players like that out of any team… Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland 3 Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star LIVING THE DREAM Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summer center_img 3 REVEALED Trippier missed a penalty as Spurs most 2-0 to Crystal Palace in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday RANKED Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ LATEST “Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura have come in, there are not exactly fools, these are players that cost £20m or £30m, they are not cheap players.“You would have still thought there is enough cover there to pick up a couple of more results, though.“It’s difficult to replace people – where are you going to find a top class player who is going to come in for just four and five weeks, but when Harry Kane is back fit you’ll be on the bench? It’s very difficult to find somebody.”It looks very likely Pochettino will end his fifth season in charge of Tottenham without winning a trophy after their double cup exit, losing to Chelsea on Sunday before a 2-0 defeat to Palace in the FA Cup fourth round.Spurs are currently third in the Premier League and way off the pace of the leaders, while few expect them to mount a realistic challenge in the Champions League ahead of their last-16 clash against Borussia Dortmund. targets Kevin De Bruyne ‘loves Man City and wants to keep winning’, reveals father IN DEMAND Supporters have been left frustrated by yet another failure to lift silverware and Redknapp has also admitted his disappointment, having tipped the team to end their wait this term.“Tottenham have got an incredible team and they have been decimated by injuries, but they do need a trophy for sure,” he added.“I said this season they will definitely win a trophy, but it’s looking tougher now, there’s only one left they can win and that’s the Champions League.“Fans will be disappointed, but at the same time they love the manager and quite rightly so. He’s done a great job there.“But they do want to see a trophy on the sideboard sooner or later, it’s got to happen at some stage.”Listen back to Harry Redknapp on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL abovelast_img read more
