If there were any suggestions made that the Hotspur’s best players need not to leave the club in search of glory in the Premier League era and the period back to the departure of Bill Nicholson in 1974, it would have been considered as unintelligent.
Spurs have been at a loss in the last 10 years as they have lost the likes of Gareth Bale, Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Carrick and Luka Modric both at home and outside the country.
But with the transfer window being shut, their major asset has made an announcement this January saying that anyone who wants to leave the White Heart now will be stupid to do so and it’s hard to disagree.
Harry kane said that he would be surprised to see any of his team mates leave right now as something is happening in the club currently. They just need to take the final step of winning trophies.
They have got one of the best coaches in the world. They are also going to have a new stadium soon and the future looks bright. The stadium will give a lift to Tottenham and boost their confidence like the English Clubs to start every season with the belief that they can win the title.
The prices of the corporate and VIP facilities will make the ordinary season tickets look like pocket money treats. But money is not the most important thing. It is all about having a good team and Tottenham have one. Most of them have signed new contracts. Europe’s best goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris along with Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Christian Eriksen, all of them are staying in the team. The jewel in the crown, Harry Kane is signed up until 2022.
They have Mauricio Pochettino as their manager. Pochettino gave chance to Roberto Soldado, Paulinho and Emmanuel Adebayor to prove themselves and when they failed to meet his standards, he gave chance to the youngsters. It took a lot of courage but now he has built a team that understands their responsibilities as players. Their hard work paid off against Manchester City earlier in the season and they were breathtaking against West Bromwich Albion a fortnight ago.
They have a considerable distance to cover and it was seen in their Champions league exit and the run of one win in 10 alongside Kane’s absence due to his injury. Arsenal can flip between Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud up front and Manchester City have Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus. For Chelsea there are Diego Costa and Eden Hazard while Zlatan and Marcus Rashford are there for Manchester United. But the Spurs are beholden to Kane as Vincent Janssen has been disappointing in the up front.
There are fears that Pochettino might leave the club and he might be lured back to Spain by Barcelona or Real Madrid. But he declared last week that he could stay in England for another 20 years. He might be able to build the club in his own image like Arsene Wenger did.
Pochettino has the chance to follow those achievements. It is not going to be easy and there is a huge gap between potential and reality but the obstacles are not there anymore which were holding back his predecessors. The team is strong and the facilities are good. The stadium will generate huge revenues and their most important player has declared that if you are looking for success then there is no need to leave Tottenham.
