Tottenham Hotspur’s boss Jose Mourinho has ruled out any big signing this summer as coronavirus affects continue to hurdle the sport across the globe.
It was reported that the North London-based club is struggling financially following COVID-19 and they have taken £200 million bank loan as well.
The manager revealed that he is not expecting any big names joining Spurs in coming season. He was talking to media ahead of highly anticipated game against Manchester United.
“Every club has its own situation and philosophy and approach,” Goal quoted Mourinho. “I’m not expecting to be in position of great spending. I’m expecting my club to be very balanced and honest in that kind of approach. We know that we are going to be in the same league, in the same world, as clubs that are going to do completely different to us.”
He added: “We have examples already of clubs investing, making important movements in the market and we are still nine matches from the end of the season. But we are always going to be very balanced as Tottenham normally is. Would I expect us not to do anything and stay with exactly the same squad? My answer is no. I would expect us to do some little important things, if we do them, and improve in two, three positions. I am completely open to the changes, completely supportive of the owners and let’s go for it. In this moment, I’m not even thinking about that because I’m focused on these nine matches.”
