Tottenham Hotspur did not end the 2019/20 season in style, but they certainly finished on a high note by qualifying for the Europa League on the final day.

Jose Mourinho would have liked to have been fighting for Champions League qualification, as well as continuing to look for trophies this year, but that proved a challenge too far.

With the Lilywhites knocked out of both the FA Cup and the Champions League already, their season ends today and they begin to look ahead to the 2020/21 campaign.

With the COVID-19 lockdown, Spurs will have a shorter break and pre-season than normal this year, with the new campaign set to start in September.

Jose Mourinho has now revealed that while Tottenham will not be signing 10 players or splashing £100m on a new star, they will look to improve the squad.

He also looked forward to having a full team of players next season, rather than a heaving medical room.

He said (Football London): “What we can do is improve. When all the players are available we showed in this last period where we belong. After lockdown maybe we finished third or fourth in the table. That is where we belong. I want to have my team, my players, not a medical room full of players, a pitch full of players. We want to keep our very good players and after that improve the squad. Are we going to buy 10 players. No? Are we going to pay £100m for a player? No.

“We are going to improve. I enjoy working with Steve [Hitchen – Spurs chief scout] in this organisation. We are very connected with Mr Levy and the board and we’re going to do what is possible to do and hopefully next season we can give it to the fans a very good season.”
