Tottenham Hotspur’s stance in the transfer market should be applauded and manager Mauricio Pochettino deserves more credit for not investing in his squad during the last two windows, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has said.

Spurs are the first team in the Premier League era not to sign a player in consecutive transfer windows but despite the lack of fresh faces they are on their way to finish in the top four for a fourth consecutive season. “In England, the country of transfers, if you don’t do transfers then that’s a really big headline,” Klopp told Sky Sports ahead of Sunday’s league visit of Spurs.

Pochettino’s side were able to keep up with big-spending rivals Liverpool and Manchester City in the title race up until February, but have since dropped to 15 points off the top. Tottenham’s new 62,000-seater stadium could prove to be a financial burden, with early estimates that it would cost around 700 million pounds ($913 million) having jumped towards one billion pounds according to British media reports.

“I’m sure Mauricio Pochettino would have loved to have added but the players, but the first team of Tottenham is difficult to improve,” Klopp added.
