At the start of the 2018-19 Premier League season, Tottenham Hotspur were the only top flight side to not sign a single player.
However, while the inactivity in the transfer market has been questioned at times during the first half of the season, England striker Harry Kane says the decision showed ‘trust in the squad’.
In an interview he said: “The manager didn’t want to bring players in for the sake of it, he was happy with the squad he had. That gives you huge belief as a player.”
“If the manager doesn’t buy players it shows he is willing to trust and you want to repay him by working hard and improving yourself on the pitch. We’ve got a lot of players fighting for places and the competition for places is good.”
“Everyone has done great this year, players that have come in when others have been injured and done well. We’re going to need that for the rest of the season as well.”
Spurs’ next game is against Manchester United who have been in good form since the caretaker appoint of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, winning their last five games.
