Tottenham Hotspur star player Christian Eriksen is an important member in Mauricio Pochettino’s side and played a big role in the club’s success last term in the English top flight.
And speaking recently about the summer transfer window situations, he noted that his club’s rivals cannot spend their way to League glory.
Spurs are still silent this summer and are yet to splash the cash to bring in new legs. However, other domestic rivals including Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City, Liverpool, and Everton, have all spent cash for reinforcements.
Man United paid Everton a superb £75M to bring in Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku after completing a deal for former Benfica defender Victor Lindelof.
Arsenal also paid a club-record fee to bring in Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon this summer, and the Frenchman had been performing above average in the gunners preseason training.
Even Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City paid Tottenham a lavish £56 Million for Kyle Walker to make him the most expensive defender in history, after paying Monaco a hefty fee to bring in Bernardo Silva earlier this summer.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side finished second behind league champions Chelsea, and the Stamford Bridge club have spent hugely to bring in the likes of Alvaro Morata, Antonio Rudiger, and Tiemoue Bakayoko.
But Eriksen still feels spending big money to bring in new legs is not the most important thing.
‘I don’t think you need to spend to win anything, It’s just a matter of how you see a team, how the players are.
‘It’s an English thing isn’t it. It’s an English thing where you have to spend money to win something, apparently.’ he said.
