Hugo Lloris and Mousa Dembele have defended Tottenham’s lack of activity in the transfer market.
In quotes published by Sky, Dembele said: “I think the way we do it is very good. We don’t change five or six players every season because that means you have to start over with new players.
“We concentrate on the team we have now. If the team stays like this, we know that we’re going to have a good season like last year. The quality we have now; everybody is looking in the same direction.
“We’re very positive. For us it’s like a family. It’s a very good thing to have a group that stays together and understands each other as well.”
Captain Lloris was also calm about the situation, telling Sky: “Honestly I don’t care about that (transfers). It belongs to the chairman and the manager. I’m just a player and I’m committed to my team.
“We trust each other. We’re used to working together for a while now and we will be ready to be competitive again this season.”
OK — it’s unlikely any Spurs player is going to come out and criticise the lack of business. But the above quotes suggest there is very little negativity among the players when it comes to transfers. The fans, however, remain divided on the issue.
