Guardiola admits to recruiting Pedro Pohl… “Very good recruitment for Tottenham.”
Pep Guardiola praised Tottenham’s recruitment of Pedro Poro (24).
Tottenham finally managed to reinforce their right wingback in the winter transfer market. For several seasons, Tottenham’s right wingback has been the biggest weakness. Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty have not been trusted by fans for their ups and downs throughout the season. Jed Spence, who signed last summer, was not in Antonio Conte’s plans.
Eventually, he pushed for a wingback recruitment in January and selected a prisoner.Pedro Pororo is a wingback with excellent offensive power and is the type Tottenham was looking for. A sharp cross from the side is a strength and actively participates in the attack. Depending on the situation, it comes inside the box and threatens the goal. He also has excellent ability to produce offensive points with 11 assists this season.
The recruitment process was not easy. The transfer fee negotiations with Sporting went on for a long time. At the last minute, the contract was reached and then broken. Tottenham have not given up on a prisoner and reached an agreement 11 minutes before the transfer window closes. The transfer fee was 45 million euros.
The Girona-grown prisoner moved to Manchester City in 2019. But there was no chance and he went on loan to Valladolid and Sporting. Manchester City inserted a 2000 million pounds buyback clause (a clause that allows players to be recruited again if they pay a certain transfer fee) while sending prisoners to Sporting. As a result, there was also news that Manchester City, not Tottenham, could reintroduce prisoners.
Manchester City manager Guardiola said he did not consider signing Pedro prisoner. According to European football transfer market expert Fabricio Romano, Guardiola said, “Poros were on the list, but I didn’t think about the buyback. He decided to play for Tottenham. He said, “It will be a very good recruit for Tottenham.”
Tottenham will play the 22nd round of the 2022-23 English Premier League (EPL) against Manchester City at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on the 5th. Pororo is expected to make his Tottenham debut as a starter on the day.
