Tottenham Hotspur have not tasted success with lifting a competitive trophy since winning the League Cup in 2008.

Jonathan Woodgate was the hero on the day in extra time against Chelsea at Wembley when Juande Ramos was the man in charge in North London.

Spurs have come close to silverware since then, notably in last season’s Champions League final along with a failed Premier League campaign in 2015/16 when Leicester City were surprise winners.

Jose Mourinho’s best chance of bringing silverware to the club this season is arguably the FA Cup.

Mauricio Pochettino experienced humiliation in the Carabao Cup at the hands of League Two outfit Colchester United, while the gap between Spurs and Liverpool in the Premier League table could be as much as sixteen points if Jurgen Klopp’s side win their game in hand.

Just months after departing Tottenham, Vincent Janssen has got his hands on his first trophy with his new club.

The Dutch striker swapped England for Mexico when he joined Monterrey and has helped them to win the Liga MX title.

The 25-year-old scored ten goals in twenty appearances for Monterrey this season in all competitions, a stark improvement from his struggles at Spurs (transfermarkt).

The two-legged final was decided on Sunday with a penalty shoot out, with Janssen coming off the bench to score his penalty which Monterrey won 4-2 after being held to a 2-2 draw.

Janssen took to Twitter to share a photo of himself wearing his winners medal whilst on the plane home.
