Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham Hotspur have regressed in recent years

According to TalkSport (h/t Standard), former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp believes the club have missed out on a golden opportunity to win a trophy under Mauricio Pochettino.

He went on to add that the club are nowhere near the team they were just a few seasons ago. Given our performance this season, it is hard to disagree with Redknapp.

In spite of being Champions League regulars and fierce competitors, Spurs never got past the finish line under Pochettino. It was a classic case of always the bridesmaid and never the bride, as we fell short numerous times.

“They’re nowhere near where they were – in my opinion – three or four years ago when they should have won something under Mauricio Pochettino.”

Spurs were involved in back-to-back title races, where we missed out to both Chelsea and Leicester. The latter still hurts, given the way we messed up a God-given opportunity. Pochettino and Tottenham came within touching distance of glory on multiple occasions, most recently enduring a devastating 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the final of the Champions League.

In spite of being the best team on the night, we just could not find a way past a determined Reds rearguard and had to once again come away as second best.

The final was the zenith of Pochettino’s tenure as things unravelled quickly after that night in Madrid. The Argentine would not see out the year and was replaced by Jose Mourinho after a poor start to the season.

The Portuguese tactician got off to a good start but could not maintain the momentum. As things stand, we are on course for yet another trophyless season.

Tottenham’s last trophy came in 2008 when Juande Ramos led us to the League Cup. With a serial winner like Mourinho in charge, hopefully, the next one is just around the corner.
