‘Mauricio Pochettino DESERVES to be backed in the transfer window’, says Tottenham legend Darren Anderton

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino deserves to be backed in the transfer window this summer, insists club legend Darren Anderton.

The former Spurs and England midfielder joined talkSPORT after a ‘perfect night’ for the club, as they opened their new £1billion stadium with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

The result lifted Spurs back up to third in the Premier League table and ended a torrid run of five games without victory.

That familiar mid-season dip would have been enough to convince fans they need to improve the team this summer – not like they needed much convincing – after two barren transfer windows.

Tottenham’s consistent position near the top of the table, even challenging for the title earlier in the campaign, is quite incredible given their lack of spending compared to their rivals.
