Jose Mourinho’s response when asked about signing players in January after today’s result

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho has suggested that he may not spend money in the January transfer window, as quoted on BBC Sport.

Mourinho made the suggestion in the aftermath of Tottenham’s defeat to Southampton in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Danny Ings’s goal in the 17th minute proved to be the difference between the Saints and Spurs.

The defeat for Tottenham followed a 2-2 draw with Norwich City away from home at Carrow Road in the Premier League.

Star striker Harry Kane was injured against Southampton, and it remains to be seen for how long the England international will be on the sidelines.

Spurs head coach Mourinho has suggested that he may not splash the cash this month.

BBC Sport quotes Mourinho as saying (17:13): “Come on, we need time to work. We need what we are not having. We need to focus on what we have. We are not looking to be the kings of the market. We are going to work.

“We see the bad result today which is the continuity of the last year. For 12 months, it has been very difficult to get results away from home. It is difficult. The work is not about buying, it is about working with the players on the pitch. It is something that is very difficult for us because we have no time to do it.”

Top-four challenge

The defeat to Southampton means that Tottenham are sixth in the Premier League table at the moment with 30 points from 21 matches.

The North London outfit are six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and are still very much in the race for a Champions League place.
