Glenn Hoddle: Interested in England job

Former Tottenham favourite Glenn Hoddle has blasted his former club for a lack of summer spending.

Spurs are the only club yet to spend any money and yet have sold Kyle Walker, Nabil Bentaleb, Federico Fazio and Clinton N’Jie.

Hoddle, who both played for and managed the club, was shown the bottom of the net spend table on BT Sport and was baffled by their inaction, much like many Tottenham fans.

Hoddle said: “It’s incredible and I don’t understand it.

“The squad wasn’t strong enough and isn’t strong enough. They need to go into debt. They need to be putting players in there that they can play without [Dele] Alli and [Harry] Kane and rest them.

“Spurs don’t have that squad; they didn’t have it last year and they should have gone out and bought three or four top-quality players.

“I keep hearing ‘we’re good enough’ but I’m sorry, they’re not good enough at the moment. They’re not. It’s been proved the last two years. Spurs don’t have that depth in that squad like some of those teams.”
