Former Tottenham chairman Alan Sugar feels his old club should've been more cautious with the cash raised from Gareth Bale's sale.

Former Tottenham chairman Alan Sugar feels his old club should've been more cautious with the cash raised from Gareth Bale's sale.

A £100million summer spending spree raised hopes among the Tottenham faithful, but that hope has given way to fear, especially as a rampant Manchester United team are due at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Sugar said: "(Chairman) Daniel Levy did a very good deal with [Gareth] Bale. He was going, there was nothing he could do about it, and he has given (sporting director) Franco Baldini the money to go out and spend, but I wonder if it is just a case of spending for the sake of spending it.

"Maybe we should have sat back a few moments and been a bit selective, a bit like (Arsenal boss) Arsene Wenger."
