Tottenham transfers: ‘Spurs need to rebuild squad this summer’
Tottenham transfers: Spurs need a major overhaul this summer, according to Ossie Ardiles
Ossie Ardiles believes that Tottenham will need a major squad overhaul in the summer in order to bounce back from their disappointing season.
The north London side are on course to finish sixth in the Premier League after missing out on their primary target of securing Champions League qualification.
Whoever comes in, or if Tim stays, he has to make a big rebuilding of the team
Spurs brought in a host of new players last summer following Gareth Bale’s big-money departure to Real Madrid but a poor run of form led to Andre Villas-Boas’s sacking before Christmas.
And Spurs legend Ardiles feels that the blame rests with the players and not Villas-Boas or his successor Tim Sherwood.
“I believe that the players we have bought in this season have been the problem,” Ardiles told talkSPORT.
“They are not performing the way we expected. I don’t want to name names, but basically all the people we have bought. This is a serious, serious problem.
“At the end of the day, whoever the manager is, AVB earlier in the season and later on Tim, there is not a lot you can do with the kind of players we have right now.
“Whoever comes in, or if Tim stays, he has to make a big rebuilding of the team.”
