"Until you finish the game you can't say it's the end". There were also new contracts for the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris.
"Building a new training ground, finishing this summer the lodge was a massive investment", he said.
Tottenham Hotspur became the first Premier League club since the summer transfer window began to fail to sign a single player but Mauricio Pochettino said he was happy for the club to "behave differently".
"Now we have players who compete at a high level in the World Cup, and we have the captain who is the world champion, the one who lifted the trophy".
"It's not about adding because it's fashionable to sign players. We are going to be better - no doubt about that".
Asked why the club have struggled to recruit players this summer, Pochettino replied: "The market was insane". I think it is clear what is going on and how we are going to move in the future.
"You saw it with Arsenal when they moved to the Emirates, you can't buy anyone, you have to sell players. I am the boss and if I expect from you to do something, then you need to provide it".
"I didn't see Tottenham buying anyone anyway, but I'd have them fourth", Merson told Sky Sports. "I am so proud about them because they were very focused on trying to arrive in a very good condition".
"Some need more time to get fit than others". Some will be fit to start the game.
"We try to be competitive".
