Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho urges Daniel Levy to splash the cash to improve his squad ‘like Liverpool’ in recent years

JOSE MOURINHO has urged Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to back him in the transfer market like Liverpool do with Jurgen Klopp.

The Portuguese gaffer called on chairman Levy to improve the squad using the Reds' backing of Klopp as an example.

Despite adding Gareth Bale, Matt Doherty, Joe Rodon, Carlos Vinicius, Sergio Reguilon and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to their ranks this summer, Mourinho has called for more.

Speaking ahead of his team's trip to Burnley tomorrow, he said: "More than the squad, it is time to work and time for evolution.

"It is time to affect the team not just the way we play, but the way we think - sometimes the way we think takes more time than other things.

"I am very happy with the squad but, of course, next summer we will need to give a couple of touches but this is what you always do to improve the squad.

"Look at Liverpool, for example, when Jurgen has been there. How many transfer windows? He went to the market and improved the team."

Earlier this week Mourinho was at it again, this time urging his club to tie Son Heung-Min down to a long term contract.

And Spurs are said to have responded by offering the South Korean a £200,000-a-week deal.

Elsewhere, Lucas Moura has hailed new signing Vinicius after the Brazilian bagged two assists on his debut against LASK in the Europa League.

He said: "I’m very happy for him, he deserves this moment.

“Like I said before, he will help us a lot. He’s strong, makes good runs, good in the air and can hold the ball well.

"It’s not easy to come here from Portugal to the Premier League with a new philosophy, very, very different, and he needs to adapt quickly.

“I’m helping him, everyone is helping him, and I think he feels comfortable already.

"Step by step he will improve, and he will help us. He’s a very interesting player and like I said, he’s good for us, good for the squad.”
