Spurs budget limited without Champions League – Levy

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has revealed that a potential lack of Champions League football next season would have significant consequences all-round, including the funds intended for new signings. With nine games left to play, Spurs currently sit in eight place, seven points off top four.

As quoted by the Evening Standard, Levy spoke to the Tottenham ­Hotspur Supporters’ Trust and played down rumours of a summer spending spree, reiterating that Spurs are a club preferring to make stars, rather than buy them. He named midfielder Harry Winks as a good example of such an approach. He was proud to see Winks wear the captain’s armband in the team’s recent Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers, believing it was a good reflection of the progress the 24-year-old has made.

Head coach Jose Mourinho recently ruled out spending too much as well, but he called upon the club to make some signings in order to restore balance to the squad. Harry Kane has been out for a while, and fellow forward Son Heung-min won’t play again this season. On top of it all, Steven Bergwijn, who arrived to boost the depleted attacking section in January, is now injured as well.
