Kane Wins EPL September Player Of The Month Award

Kane Wins EPL September Player Of The Month Award

Mauricio Pochettino, Manager of Tottenham Hotspur looks on prior to the Premier League match between Huddersfield Town and Tottenham Hotspur at John Smith's Stadium on September 30, 2017 in Huddersfield, England.

Manchester City and their manager Pep Guardiola spent around £220 million on a massive squad overhaul while Jose Mourinho and Manchester United spent £150m on Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof this season.

Tottenham didn't make any signings until late in the summer transfer window but eventually ended up bringing in five players as Davinson Sanchez, Paulo Gazzaniga, Juan Foyth, Serge Aurier and Fernando Llorente all joined the club.

Speaking to BeIn Sports, Pochettino did not say he was unhappy with that issue, but believes he is competing on an uneven financial playing field.

With United also spending huge money on new players, Pochettino sees the difference between Tottenham and them.

"We kept Jamie Vardy quiet who's another good striker in our last game and if we can do that again we'll be happy". Their job isn't necessarily to drive it, but merely sustain it - to maintain a flowing circulation of capital.

'It's the big difference today'. And yet arguing that you could be priced out of winning a Premier League title doesn't really get you anywhere. Even those at the very top, like Sheikh Mansour, have little control over these mechanisms of fiscal power anymore.

This is the sad truth about institutions, and Pochettino can moan about it every week if he wants, but nothing, I guarantee, will change.
