The Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says Chelsea bought the Premier League title.
He said Chelsea boss spent his way to the title after a 120 million transfer splurge over the summer.Conte touched a nerve with the Argentine by claiming Tottenham held an advantage in the title race due to both the lower expectations surrounding the club and Pochettinos longer time in charge.But Pochettino, who is in his third season with Spurs, has rejected that suggestion, aiming a dig at the amount of money Chelsea have thrown at their latest title victory and highlighting the lack of young players in their squad.I understand him. Its difficult for him because he was always a manager who liked to work with and to develop young talent, said Pochettino prior to Chelseas title-clinching win over West Brom.Its difficult when you sign for a club like Chelsea and you have the pressure to win and you spend the money that they spent on David Luiz, Marcos Alonso, [Michy] Batshuayi and [NGolo] Kante. I totally understand but I dont know if I agree with him that its an advantage.Mauricio Pochettino says Chelsea bought the Premier League titleChelsea were very active on deadline day, bringing in Luiz and Alonso in big-money deals .Then [Arsenal manager] Arsene Wenger should win the league every season because he is 20 years in charge, if that is the right way to measure our advantage.I think its not fair to measure with me, as it is to measure with Wenger. Twenty years is a massive advantage. Why not win every season? Its not a criticism [of Wenger]. It was not the best comment from him [Conte].It was 30m summer signing Batshuayi who scored the goal that sealed the title at the Hawthorns on Friday night, coming off the bench to score only his second league goal for Chelsea.
