Tottenham manager feels Premier League clubs are at a disadvantage because of their self-imposed deadline but the drawbacks are few and apply only to the biggest clubs
The habitually genial Mauricio Pochettino has shown another side to his character of late. From suggesting the Tottenham project would continue “with me or another”, to urging his boss, Daniel Levy, to put his hands in his pockets, the Argentinian has taken to being more forthright in public. The object of his most recent remarks was also the one that has left him most irate: this summer’s shortened transfer window.
“If you compare with Europe, you are at a complete disadvantage and it does not help the clubs in the Premier League,” Pochettino said during Tottenham’s tour of the United States last week. “We are all in the same situation in England. I don’t know if the rest of the teams are happy with that decision. Personally, I think it’s not right. It’s not going to help the Premier League clubs because we’re going to compete in Europe and in the Champions League but have 20 days less. It’s not going to help.”
