Fighting talk from Toby Alderweireld

Remember the days when we used to be devoid of real quality in the centre of defence?  Not since the days of Ledley King have we seen a defender of Toby Alderweireld’s quality.

Jan Vertonghen may have something to say about that but Alderweireld has been a huge signing for us and the Belgian is not looking to rest on the laurels of us achieving Champions League football for next season.
In recent years, the mindset of the Premier League fan has been to ‘finish in the top four’, however Alderweireld insists that Tottenham will be looking to win the Premier League title next season than just settle for another Champions League outing.

“I think we now have a different mindset from the one we had at the beginning of this season,” he told Sky Sports.

“Then we were thinking the top four would be brilliant now we are thinking more than that, we want to go one better.

“We want to win it, and we will go for it,” he added.

The defeat at Newcastle left a sour taste in both the mouths of the Tottenham fans and players, but Toby is focused on us being an even stronger force next season.

“Of course we were very disappointed because all of Tottenham wanted to get second you know but overall at the end we have to think we had a good season.

“We have got guaranteed Champions League football which we have not had for a couple of years so it is the next step for the club.

“That’s important and next season we can come back stronger.”

  1. We have to add 4 or 5 top players I have waited all my life for title & it is my obsession. Win 1 then why not more. Also like to see cups sprinkled in , all the others will strengthen so we must give manager time & get them players
