Barry Fry has exclusively told Football FanCast that Tottenham must make a “statement” in the transfer window.
They signed no less than seven players last summer, but following their Carabao Cup final defeat last weekend, it’s been another trophyless season for Spurs, who could also miss out on Champions League football once again – with the gap to fourth-placed Chelsea at five points.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been the best of their seven summer additions, but the likes of Joe Rodon, Matt Doherty and Carlos Vinicius have all struggled to make an impact in Tottenham’s first-team, with the latter scoring just once in the Premier League.
And Fry has warned Tottenham’s owners that they must improve their squad to compete again next season.
Should Spurs finish 7th or lower, it would be the first time they’ve finished outside the top-six since coming 8th under Harry Redknapp back in 2008-09.
Fry told Football FanCast:
“I think a statement has got to be made by Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy that they intend to keep Harry and they intend to help him by getting better quality squad players.
“If Tottenham’s first team go out, on their day they can beat anybody, but if they get injuries, they haven’t got the strength in depth or class to come in and do the same job.
“They’ve got a big, big problem!”
