Former Chelsea Legend Backs Tottenham To Challenge Europe’s Elites By Making A Minor Change

Tottenham need to show the ruthless side of their game if they are to win some silverware, opines former Chelsea stalwart, Frank Lampard. The former England international midfielder wrote in his Champions League weekly special column for Evening Standard that Tottenham need to up their game to be reckoned as a major European force.

Lampard says that this is a Tottenham team that has caught the imagination of everyone across the country. He claims that people keep talking about this being one of the greatest Tottenham teams of all-time but that we are yet to win a title.

The midfielder says that there is no place for the runners-up and being eternal bridesmaids to fellow Premier League hopefuls will not be of any help. Reaching the semi-finals or giving a tough fight for the title looks good on paper but nothing works more than winning a silverware.

Lampard opines that this side has all the right ingredients and only thing Mauricio Pochettino needs to bring is a ruthless attitude with some determination to win trophies.

He wrote,

“I think coach Mauricio Pochettino has the quality of squad to change the side and still do well in all the competitions. The first team can definitely compete. What they need to do is go that extra mile and find the attitude of being winners. Tottenham can’t afford any slip-ups.”

People talk about how Tottenham landed up in a very tricky group in the Champions League but Lampard sees this as a window of opportunity. A chance to hobnob with giants like Real Madrid is not for everyone. In addition, if Pochettino can guide his team to one or even two victories over the Los Blancos, it could set the right tone for Spurs’ charge in the Champions League.

How true is the assessment? Without getting into finer details, it has to be noted that Lampard got it right about the need to be consistently ruthless. Pochettino’s side continue to impress in the Premier League but for them to be continuously tagged as giants, they need to break the ranks and win titles.

There is no dearth of world-class talent in this Spurs side. Harry Kane is probably the most lethal striker in the world right now – on par with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Then, in Dele Alli, Spurs have a midfield general who is one of the best in his trade. If Pochettino can add those vital final ingredients, Tottenham would soon be buzzing with trophies.
