Cape Town - Former director of football Damien Comolli has supported Tottenham's decision to remain quiet in the transfer market despite the big spending of their rivals.

Spurs are yet to spend money on new signings in the current transfer window, but Comolli believes they are justified in their decision considering the quality and youth in their starting XI.

“I think Tottenham deserve so much respect for what they’ve achieved,” the Frenchman told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.

“Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino are working with less money than everybody else and working on a lot smaller wage bill than any of the Premier League’s top five - we need to give them some credit.

“I’m sure they know exactly where they’re going [in the transfer market].

“The thing with Spurs which is extremely difficult for them to deal with and is probably very frustrating, is that if you take that first XI, it’s so difficult to make it better because every player is fantastic, every player is young…"

He added: “It must be so difficult to find reinforcements for that team.

“Pound-for-pound, every player could play for almost every club in the world, that’s how good that starting XI is.”

Meanwhile Pochettino has admitted that his side is behind the likes of Manchester, but has assured that they are in the process of adding more quality.

Guardiola's City has added six signings so far and showed their quality with a 3-0 win over Spurs in a pre-season friendly at the weekend.
