William Gallas has already admitted to looking to new the season just hours after Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester City meaning the latter, not the former, will be playing Champions League football next season.

The former Arsenal centre-back has formed a formidible partnership at the back with Michael Dawson this season and is focusing beyond the club’s league encounter with Liverpool on Sunday which could, potentially, turn out to be be a Europa League deciding fixture.

Gallas, following Tuesday’s fixture, said “I’m looking forward to it. We will work hard in pre-season, speak together and be ready for the start of the season.

“We’ll take it game by game and before the games will know what we have to say and what we have to do. I think it’s important to start very well.”

After falling at the quarter final hurdle, the 1-0 loss for City meant Spurs will not be competing in Europe’s top competition for at least another 12 months and Gallas has said that missing out on Champions League football next season has been a hard pill to swallow. 

“I’m sure all the players are upset now. It’s the best competition in Europe and you want to play and compete against the big clubs in Europe.

“But like I said, next season we have to be sure we start very well and I think our target will be to play in the Champions League again.”

Gallas recently signed a new two year contract extension to his current deal and the 33 year old will be looking to participate in the Champions League again before his contract expires in 2013.

Lucas Moura came close to joining Manchester United before moving to PSG

In an interview given to ESPN Brasil (h/t Mirror) Lucas Moura revealed that he almost joined Manchester United before opting for Paris Saint-Germain in 2012.

Moura was a rising talent back in 2012, starring for Sao Paulo in his native Brazil. A return of 33 goals in 128 games had European giants Inter Milan and Manchester United sit up and take notice.

In the same summer that Shinji Kagawa and Robin van Persie moved to Old Trafford, Moura decided to move to PSG instead.

Moura spent 6 seasons in the French capital before moving to Tottenham and scored 46 goals in 229 appearances for PSG. During this time, he won Ligue one 4 times, the French League cup 4 times and the Coupe de France 3 times.

Although his stint with the French champions was trophy-laden, Moura was not able to fulfill his promise. He, however, does not regret making the move to Paris and believes he learned a lot.

“Despite the hard times, the bad times, I don’t regret it because I grew a lot, I learned a lot. Now I’m here in the Premier League, and it’s a new hope”

“Time to spend” – Some Tottenham fans want club to splash the cash after defender picks up injury

Latest Spurs news: Foyth picks up ankle injury during Audi Cup win over Bayern Munich

Tottenham lifted the Audi Cup crown after defeating Bayern Munich on penalties but there was some concern about Juan Foyth.

The Argentine defender injured his ankle during the second half and had to leave the pitch on a stretcher.

The 21-year-old went down holding his ankle and Mauricio Pochettino was concerned regarding his fellow Argentine (h/t BBC):

“I need to talk with the doctor.

“He twisted his ankle but at the moment I cannot give an update. He said his ankle was very painful.”

Tottenham dealt a major blow ahead of the campaign

The youngster played put up some great performances for the club last season and even filled in as a right-back in certain games. Spurs are a little light in that position after selling Kieran Trippier in the summer, and Serge Aurier has had his injury problems.

The Argentine will be suspended for the first two Premier League games of the season, which means Kyle Walker-Peters should start the season as the first-choice right-back.

Losing Foyth could be a problem for Spurs and hopefully, he isn’t out for too long. Tottenham have only bought Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke this season, and cannot do with injuries to first-teamers.

Many Spurs fans were also concerned about Foyth’s injury and wanted the club to sign a right-back soon.

Latest Spurs news: Mauricio Pochettino confident of Dele Alli facing Liverpool

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was confident that star attacker Dele Alli would face Liverpool on 1st June.

Spurs face the Reds in the Champions League final in Madrid but the Englishman was replaced at half-time in our final game of the Premier League season.

We finished the campaign with a 2-2 draw at home as Christian Eriksen scored the equaliser in the second half.

Alli has had his injury concerns this season but Pochettino was confident the Englishman’s substitution was not related to a problem (h/t Sky Sports):

“He didn’t start in the warm-up, he was feeling strange and then his performance was very poor in the first half because he can’t cope with the situation.

“So because of caution, he was out. I think it is not a problem. We need to assess him, but I think he was tired, but for the circumstance again we played with him.”

The Argentine claimed that he would not have started Alli in normal circumstances but withdrew the star before something serious happened.

Tottenham need their stars to be fit

The clash against Liverpool will be our biggest in decades and we need all the help we can get. Harry Kane and Harry Winks are also looking to regain fitness for the final against the Reds.

Liverpool have had an excellent season where they missed out on the Premier League title despite scoring 97 points.

However, we gave them a run for their money in the away game this season. The Reds won via an own goal from us, and no one can rule us out in a European tie.

Wins over Manchester City, Ajax and Borussia Dortmund prove that we can do it on the big stage and we should have one more big push to land the Champions League crown.

Latest Tottenham news: Harry Kane admits Tottenham need to play better under pressure

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has claimed that the team have to play better when under pressure. Mauricio Pochettino has built a side that has challenged for the Premier League in recent years, however, Spurs always seem to fall at the final hurdle.

This was on show recently when we lost consecutive games against Burnley and Chelsea before coming out with a fortunate point against Arsenal.

Spurs were in with a shout of winning the Premier League title this season, and Kane believes we have to deal better with pressure (h/t BT Sport):

“The thing for us now, kind of like this week, when the pressure is on and we need to step up, we need to find a way to get it done.

“We haven’t done that in recent years, we haven’t done that this week and that will be the difference. That is the turning point that we need to try and achieve.”

Kane hopes for silverware soon

The England captain added that every team is strengthening and that we need to do the same too. Tottenham haven’t signed a single player in two transfer windows, and that surely has affected our season too.

Spurs have a chance of making it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Tuesday. We hold a 3-0 advantage over Borussia Dortmund after the first-leg and hopefully, we complete the job in Germany.
