Pochettino rules out January signings

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has ruled out any transfer activity this winter.

Speaking to the press ahead of his team welcoming Watford to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, the Argentinian said he believes his squad is strong enough despite some extremely disappointing results lately. Interestingly enough, he was saying the complete opposite after their shocking Carabao Cup elimination at the hands of League Two side Colchester United, when he described the January transfer window as the perfect opportunity to fix a few things.

After that, Spurs suffered heavy defeats to Bayern Munich in the Champions League and Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League, losing the services of goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris in the process. They redressed that particular issue by re-signing 35-year-old Michel Vorm a few days ago, but Pochettino feels there will be no need for further additions when the window opens at the turn of the year.

He stressed that he respects other opinions, but also reaffirmed his position that his players possess enough quality to be fighting for what they are expected to fight.
