Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has called on Daniel Levy to keep investing in the club and the squad as he seeks to guide Spurs to success in the Premier League.
Spurs have enjoyed a good start to the season this term, scoring goals for fun and crushing Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford just a few weeks ago.
Mourinho was backed heavily in the summer. The likes of Gareth Bales, Pierre Hojbjerg, and Matt Doherty among a host of names to arrive in north London.
However, speaking to the Express, Mourinho has called on the club to try and mirror Liverpool and believes even more will be needed.
“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.”
Mourinho’s comments will serve as a bit of a warning for those higher up who may think the job is done in terms of giving the boss the squad he needs to compete.

Could this be a way of deflecting any sort of pressure? It seems that way.
Mourinho is right in that teams sometimes evolve over a number of windows but he’s also been given a squad that, on paper, has more than enough talent to go and win a trophy or two.
Anything less than a serious push for the top four or winning some silverware this term will be a failure for Jose. He knows it, too.
