Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says the club should change his job description to just a head-coach.
He's frustrated at a lack of input into transfers, which are handled by chairman Daniel Levy.
Spurs have made Tanguy Ndombele this record signing this summer and also completed the captures of Kion Etete from Notts County as well as Jack Clarke from Leeds.
They were the first players to join the North London club in over a year and Pochettino insists he has no idea about any comings or goings at the club.
“I am not in charge and I know nothing about the situation of my players. I am only coaching them and trying to get the best from them. Sell, buy players, sign contract, not sign contract – I think it is not in my hands, it’s in the club’s hands and Daniel Levy.
"The club need to change my title and description. Of course I am the boss deciding the strategic play, but in another area I don’t know. Today, I feel like I am the coach.”
Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen both played for Tottenham in their 1-0 friendly win over Real Madrid last night, despite being linked with a move away but Gareth Bale was not part of the Madrid squad against his old side.
A potential switch to China fell through for the Welsh attacker last weekend and manager Zinedine Zidane says Bale didn't make the trip due to illness.
"Why did not Bale travel? Because he did not feel well and after talking with the doctors it was better to stay in Madrid.
"He stayed training there. It's a joint decision, made by the doctors and me, and I spoke with him, that's all."
