Comolli: Spurs improving “almost impossible”

Former director of football, Damien Comolli, believes the task of improving our starting XI is “almost impossible”.


Comolli believes that Spurs would have to invest record amounts to land a player with the ability to break into the Tottenham first team XI and doubted whether improvement could be made on such a low budget. However, he was quick to praise the management. Speaking to TalkSport he said:

I think Tottenham deserve so much respect for what they’ve achieved,

Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino are working with less money than everybody else and working on a lot smaller wage bill than any of the Premier League’s top five – we need to give them some credit.

“I’m sure they know exactly where they’re going [in the transfer market].

He added: “So to reinforce that team with players who are as good or better than those players, and as young too, it’s almost an impossible task.

“They’re probably looking for young and up-and-coming players to come an compliment that team, probably two or three and I’m sure they’ll achieve that in the end.”

Ross Barkley is currently the player that we are most linked with. The England international would fit the mould of player we target, however, his wage demands and potential transfer fee are quite far off what we are willing to pay.

Negotiations are thought to be on-going with Barkley but there are doubts as to whether he would be able to break into the first team. Perhaps Comolli has a point…
