Tottenham need special player to break top four, says Glenn Hoddle
Glenn Hoddle urges Tottenham to sign a 'special player'
Glenn Hoddle believes Tottenham Hotspur need a “special player” to break the top four.
The north London side have spent heavily on improving their squad over the past 18 months, landing £27.5m signing Roberto Soldado and spending a club-record £30.75m fee on Erik Lamela.
They have some good players but they don’t have a special player
However, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are struggling to put a run together in the Premier League, languishing in 10th place following a goalless draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.
And former Spurs manager Hoddle reckons Tottenham lack a world-class player that a top-four side require to cement their position.
“He (Pochettino) may want to bring in some fresh people. Whether Daniel (Levy, the chairman) is going to be up for that remains to be seen,” Hoddle told Sky Sports.
“It is very difficult nowadays. There is a lack of world-class strikers and midfield players which control the game, express themselves and that is what I think they miss.
“They have some good players but they don’t have a special player.”
Tottenham make the trip to high-flying Swansea City at Liberty Stadium on Sunday.
