Tottenham Hotspur

Pochettino looking to strengthen this summer

2nd March 2019, 09:45 by Tom Hill

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says his team needs more firepower if they are to challenge for trophies in the coming years.

Spurs currently sit third in the Premier League table but they are now nine points off the top after a tough few weeks.

Pochettino's men have lost back-to-back games to Burnley and Chelsea in the league and are now effectively out of the title race.

Tottenham failed to sign any new players in either transfer window this season and Pochettino insists that needs to change for them to be successful.

He told reporters: "Maybe, if (chairman) Daniel Levy said to me next season 'We need to win a title, we need to win the Champions League or Premier League' maybe I say to Daniel you need to find another magic guy that can do this because we are not going to change how we operate.

"We can be there? Yes. Are we going to fight? Yes. Are we going to be competitive? Of course. But you can't say we need to win if we don't fight with the same tools."
