Antonio Conte has claimed Tottenham Hotspur must aim to be competitive in all four competitions next season.
The Italian is set to embark on his first full season in charge of Spurs after he helped to turn the club’s fortunes around last year, getting them back into the Champions League.
Tottenham have made wholesale changes to their squad this summer, with five new players arriving through the door, and potentially a right wing-back and playmaker to follow (Evening Standard).
Although the summer transfer activity has caused a lot of excitement among the Tottenham fan base, closing the gap with Liverpool and Manchester City will prove quite difficult, with both teams regularly registering 90+ points over recent campaigns.
Conte admitted that winning major competitions will prove a hard ask given that Spurs are only at the start of their ‘process’ but he insisted the team will be setting their aims high.
The 52-year-old told Football.London: “The club want to build something important for the fans. Our ambition has to be to try to improve and try to be competitive in all of the competitions that we want to play.
“Next season we will play Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup and we need a deep squad.
“I know to win it will be very difficult. We have just started this process but at the same time, it will be very important to have ambition and give everything, to improve our idea of football and add more.
“We added players with quality and the right characteristics to improve this squad. Our ambition has to be to be competitive.”

Most Spurs fans will be over the moon with a third-place finish and a Carling Cup or FA Cup win next season. We might not yet be at the level to compete with Liverpool and City just yet but as things stand, I would argue that we are the best of the rest in terms of the quality of the squad.
