Glenn sees a change

Posted on 29 April 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Glenn predicts that the transfer market in the country is likely to evolve significantly in the coming years and the club are well positioned to benefit from possible changes.

The boss feels that sky-high transfer fees could well have peaked and clubs will be more mindful that television revenue is not necessarily guaranteed to sustain itself at the current level

"I think the game is changing," pondered Glenn, speaking at his post-match press briefing on Saturday. "I think over the next few years, with what's happening with TV money, I don't see transfer fees being up there like they have been.

"I see a change. I think this is the beginning of a change in football for us, I really do, on the financial side.

"Prices have to come down, maybe the very top, top players will go for transfer fees like what we've seen.

"I think we might see more loans to the Premiership, you've got a window that's shutting in August, which is different. It's going to be settling down, you're going to see a different way of football.

"I think everyone will feel that way, I do. I think, maybe, we might be in a better position than some because we've not mortgaged the house."
