Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher were involved in a heated debate about Tottenham on Monday Night Football.
Neville and Carragher exchanged views on Spurs’ net spend in recent years, Mauricio Pochettino’s future and what the club needs to take the next step.
Here’s the full transcript of their lively debate below with the must-watch video available to view above…
Jamie Carragher: “Tottenham have made a great start to the season but a few teams have made better starts. We are talking about a team who had more players going to the end of the World Cup than anyone, they didn’t recruit in the summer and I feel like the team we are watching now is the one we were watching two years ago, which was brilliant and almost won the title. It hasn’t changed too much and I just think if you stand still you fall behind.
“I don’t think it’s sustainable what they spend in the transfer market and getting into the Champions League every year. That is not down to the great business sense of the club or the board, it’s down to the brilliance of Pochettino and the players and what the manager is getting out of them. To keep competing with teams like Manchester City and the other teams challenging for the title and top four, with that spending, is not sustainable further down the line.
