Former Arsenal star player, Thierry Henry made comments that would likely leave Gunner fans sad, especially in light of disappointments with the team’s performance. The 38-year old retired Frenchman claimed that the Spurs would lure big-name signings over the next few years.
Mauricio Pochettino’s squad have had a remarkable season and find themselves eight points behind English Premier League leaders Leicester with a game in hand. Spurs have qualified for a spot in the UEFA Champions League next season and are already looking at making signings to boost the team ahead of their campaigns next season.
Spurs face Chelsea tonight in desperate hope of keeping their title hunt alive despite having three games left to challenger first place Leicester City. Things are looking bright for the North-London side, who are hoping to move to their 61,000-capacity stadium in time for the start of the 2018-19 campaign.
“Finishing above your neighbours is great for local pride; although it doesn’t mean much if you don’t have a trophy to go with it.
“With a new stadium on the horizon and the lure of living in London, Spurs could soon become an attractive proposition for big-name signings,” “Tottenham’s scouting team has also done an excellent job, bringing in players such as Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Eric Dier in under-the-radar deals. It was also vital for them to keep Harry Kane after the season he had last season,” Henry said.
Tottenham will finish above arch-rivals Arsenal this season for the first time in 21 years and are attracting serious buzz in the transfer market ahead of next season already.
“This could be the start of a new era for them — but they still have a long journey ahead.
“Finishing above your neighbours is great for local pride, although it doesn’t mean much if you don’t have a trophy to go with it,” wrote Henry in his Sun column.
