"We couldn’t do any business so the work we did was on the pitch last year."Teams that are striving to be in and around top six and upwards were spending last year, they were spending again this summer."They’ve had the opportunity with the players they bought last year to get them embedded into their teams and we’re dealing with teams above us, which is where we want to get to, where we are aspiring to get to, that have been building their squads for a long time."We want to build our squad. We missed two windows and now we come back in and we’ve brought players in with a view to improve us."

I said yes and that I was very, very convinced about that.“Even if that [signing Partey] wouldn’t have happened, I would have still said the same thing. But they showed this time, with big funds, they are really committed.” 2020-10-17T09:59:49.000Z Premier League debuts in the pipeline?

We have to respect that decision and try to train in the best possible way to help the team in that moment and see what happens in December."
