Pierluigi Gollini believes that a club like Tottenham Hotspur should aim for glory in every competition
In an interview with the club’s official site (h/t Football.London), Tottenham Hotspur star Pierluigi Gollini has stated that an elite club like Spurs should try and win every competition they take part in.
The 26-year-old made the switch to Tottenham Hotspur from Atalanta earlier this summer. He has since made 6 appearances for the Lilywhites and is touted to be the long-term replacement for French international Hugo Lloris. Gollini started in goal against SBV Vitesse as Nuno Espirito Santo preferred to rest some of his key players for the UEFA Europa Conference League fixture.
The 26-year-old is currently on loan from the Atalanta B.C. where he played 112 matches for the Italian club across all competitions. Gollini is yet to feature in the Premier League this season but the Italian will have to fight for a regular place between the sticks. Given his performance against Vitesse, he still has ways to go.
The Italian professional footballer spoke about the need to win matches continuously so that Spurs can add some titles to their cabinet:
“At a club like this, with a strong team like ours, should aim to win every competition. Fostering a winning mentality will ensure we’re always competitive. We must focus on winning game after game so that we can reach the top and win trophies”
The North Londoners have come close on several occasions but haven’t won a trophy in the last 13 years. Steven Bergwijn is another player who has reiterated the importance of winning competitions and believes that the club should do everything to win the Europa Conference League.

In the last few seasons, Tottenham Hotspur have seen a lot of chaos with a change in systems and management at the helm. With lesser-known opponents, the Conference League could be a great way for Spurs to finally break their trophy drought and usher into a new era.
They will however have to back up their lofty claims off the pitch with performances on it. For all the hype, Gollini and Bergwijn both fell short against Vitesse as the Dutch side picked up a well-deserved win. Whether it be the Premier League or the Conference League, we still have miles to go before being called contenders.
