José Mourinho: Tottenham will be major rivals for Premier League title

Guardian - tir, 25/07/2017 - 23:30

• ‘They have kept hold of the players they wanted to keep’
• Manchester United manager claims his side are ‘not big candidates’

José Mourinho has identified Tottenham as strong rivals to win the Premier League title next season and compared his challenge at Manchester United to the one he faced previously at Real Madrid, insisting the club had been left behind in “the evolution of football” when he succeeded Louis van Gaal last summer.

Mourinho has previously won the championship in every second season of his managerial career but believes this will be difficult in the forthcoming campaign. The manager feels United are candidates to win a 21st league title but identified Spurs as major contenders because they have retained all their players so far apart from Kyle Walker, who Mourinho asserted was sold to Manchester City because his replacement, Kieran Trippier, may be as good.

• ‘Moussa is important for the French national team. He needs to play more’

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy mocks ‘unsustainable’ spending

Guardian - tir, 25/07/2017 - 22:48

• Manchester City have spent more than £200 million this summer
• Spurs have yet to make a signing in the current transfer window

The Tottenham Hotspur chairman, Daniel Levy, has mocked the Premier League’s summer spending, labelling it “unsustainable”.

Spurs are yet to sign anyone for the new campaign and have let Kyle Walker leave for title rivals Manchester City – a club who have so far spent more than £200m in this transfer window. Manchester United and Chelsea have also been busy in the market, bringing in Romelu Lukaku and Álvaro Morata for big-money fees.

Tottenham’s Kieran Trippier hoping to steal Kyle Walker’s England shirt

Guardian - lør, 22/07/2017 - 23:30
• Spurs full-back believes he has been handed a chance by Walker exit
• ‘My dream is always to play for England’

Kieran Trippier is undaunted at the prospect of battling his friend Kyle Walker for England’s right-back position at next summer’s World Cup having spent two years in his shadow at Tottenham Hotspur. While Walker begins life at Manchester City following his £50m move last week, Trippier knows this is his moment to shine.

With Russia 2018 on the horizon, the timing could not have been better for the 26-year-old who made his full international debut against France in June. Trippier signed a new five-year deal following Walker’s departure and is determined to repay the faith shown in him by Mauricio Pochettino by excelling for club and country. “For the past two years I’ve been waiting patiently for my opportunity,” he said before Spurs’ friendly match with Paris Saint-Germain in Orlando on Sunday.

Dele Alli and Harry Kane expose absurdity of football’s silly season

Guardian - lør, 22/07/2017 - 17:53
Spurs pair who cost pittance are second and third most valuable players in the world behind Neymar according to one estimate – but fans still crave a splurge

Now that the Lions tour and Wimbledon are over, and with the Test series against South Africa yet to grab the attention, thoughts can easily turn to the start of the new football season, which is only two weeks away. Or rather to the pre-season competition. I don’t mean friendly tournaments, like the money-spinning non-event of the so-called International Champions Cup. But the true sport and drama of the transfer window. A kind of fantasy football for chairmen, it is also a ritual that finds generous space for frenzied media and desperate fans alike. And all to the tune of sums of money that are increasingly difficult to conceptualise, let alone justify.

Tottenham need to find their bearings quickly as Wembley tenants | David Hytner

Guardian - lør, 22/07/2017 - 10:30

After poor results at the national stadium in last season’s European games Spurs need to find their feet on the larger pitch now it is their temporary home

The irony was not lost on Mauricio Pochettino. “Remember when I first came to Tottenham and I was criticised for saying the White Hart Lane pitch was too small for us?” the manager said. “And now, people are saying that Wembley is too big?”

Pochettino’s comments came last season, when his team’s travails at Wembley – their temporary home for European matches – were under the microscope. It was a regular talking point, one of those things that become a thing, much to the annoyance of the manager who finds himself caught up in them.
