Tottenham News: How Tottenham lost Luis Diaz Transfer Battle
While Tottenham are still outraged that Liverpool snuck in and took over a deal they had been working on. David Moyes confessed that west ham tried to get him in January earlier than other clubs.
The real story is that the player chose to go to Liverpool on his own accord. That Liverpool was able to snatch him shows what patience, a good plan, and a better coach can do for you in five years.
They were known as a selling club that had a ceiling on the quality of players it could attract, a rebound for flailing players, and a stepping stone for others until Klopp came to the club.
He stated during the loss of Coutinho “I want players who will push the bus, not sit when it’s rolling”. No one was bigger than the club, no one was allowed to leave the project for his own dreams.
The players he has brought in have pushed, achieving a Champions League, a premier league, a Supercup, a club world cup, and a Carabao Cup medal.
Tottenham lacks composure. After failure Liverpool stood by Klopp, he was spared after failures because they believed in the manager and the project they had embarked on.
The same sadly cannot be said for Tottenham. They have sacked Jose Mourinho, Mauricio Pochettino, and Nuno Espirito in 3 years. Such changes in a short period of time rarely help the players or the fans. They even sent the contract meant for Luis Diaz to Rodrigo Betancur.
With Harry Kane, not sure of staying past the summer, don’t be surprised if players pass on Tottenham for clubs they feel have stability and leaders who will give them time to reach their potential. Just like Adama Traore did.
