There has been a lot of debate and discussions about Tottenham Hotspur this season. At first, it was about our over-reliance on Harry Kane and now, it has shifted to our inability to win trophies.
Indeed, Tottenham boast of a fantastic team filled with top-class English talent and a visionary manager, who seems to have a penchant for developing and nurturing youngsters to help them reach their true potential. Yet, we somehow fall short.
The best example would be this season’s lacklustre FA Cup semi-final clash against Manchester United. Pochettino’s biggest mistake was to field Michael Vorm in the goal ahead of club captain Hugo Lloris and that cost us gravely. The Red Devils scored gleefully and raced ahead of us to book a date with Chelsea in the final.
To make our matters worse, there have also been issues with our funding, or rather, the lack of it, and Jamie Redknapp seems to agree.
In his article for Daily Mail, Redknapp addressed the concerns surrounding our meagre wage system. While other teams pay through tooth and nail to keep their first-team stars happy, Tottenham fall short by a large measure.
Kane is an indispensable member of our squad and Redknapp is of the opinion that Daniel Levy must pay him what he deserves to ensure that he stays committed to us.
“It is not going to get any easier next year. Do the Tottenham hierarchy want to spend the money that will take them to the next level?
For the fans’ sake, I hope Spurs buy the players that will allow them to compete at the top. I want them to tie Harry Kane to a five-year deal and pay him what he’s worth.
This is Tottenham’s best chance for many years to challenge seriously for trophies. I hope they do not squander this opportunity.”
Well, what he says is true and let’s hope Levy improves our wage structure to keep key players like Kane motivated and dedicated to play for us.
