Tottenham Hotspur need to sign “three or four top-quality players” this summer in order to compete for a title in the coming season, according to former Spurs boss Glenn Hoddle.
And Hoddle has insisted that the Lilywhites need to strengthen or risk being left behind – even encouraging the club to put themselves into further debt ahead of the redevelopment of White Hart Lane.
“It’s incredible and I don’t understand it,” Hoddle said on BT Sport before the Community Shield on Sunday.
“The squad wasn’t strong enough and isn’t strong enough. They need to go into debt. They need to be putting players in there that they can play without Alli and Kane and rest them.
“Spurs don’t have that squad; they didn’t have it last year and they should have gone out and bought three or four top-quality players.
“I keep hearing ‘we’re good enough’ but I’m sorry, they’re not good enough at the moment. They’re not. It’s been proved the last two years. Spurs don’t have that depth in that squad like some of those teams.”
