Gary Lineker – This Key Moment Will Decide What Tottenham Are And Their Future



The summer is going to decide a lot for us according to former Spurs striker Gary Lineker. The pundit and presenter was speaking to Goal about how important it would be for us to keep hold of our best players given the interest from some of the other top sides in Europe.

We did have another great season but again fell short of picking up the Premier League title. We also got knocked out of the FA Cup by Chelsea but a lack of silverware didn’t stop Harry Kane to Dele Alli to have stellar seasons once again.

The former striker is impressed with the work that Mauricio Pochettino has done so far, but the transfer window is what he is looking forward to.

“I think Pochettino is an excellent coach,” Lineker told Goal. “The way they play, they know exactly what they are doing. They are very young side still so they can keep everything together,” he said.

“They will have the challenge to play at Wembley next season but they will get familiar with them. The familiarity will come.

“A lot depends on a big summer for Tottenham. It’s a big summer for them to decide what they are. They have to try to keep their best players.”

A summer to build on for Tottenham


Lineker isn’t wrong in his assessment that we have to keep hold of our best players. We have a great manager and our first-team is probably the best in the country. Losing out on players such as Alli, Kane, Kyle Walker or even Danny Rose would be a step backwards as we look to claim that first Premier League trophy.

The former England international also was correct in saying that playing at Wembley might be a challenge but spending more time at the stadium should ease us and we shouldn’t see a repeat of the Champions League debacle next time around.

What we should do is look to add quality to our side and build upon the last season where we broke a number of records. The base is already there for silverware and more to come under Poch, now it is up to the management to hold onto our stars and bring in a few more players to take us to the next level.
