Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has insisted that he will not jeopardise the future of the club just because we are now in the Champions League.

Levy has told fans not to get carried away with the fact that we are now in Europe’s top club competition and that it will be difficult to hold down a top four place in the Premier League.

“We deserve to be in the Champions League. Our history dictates that but it has taken us a long time to get back,” the chairman said in The Guardian.

“I think it’s a huge achievement for Harry [Redknapp], all his coaching staff and players and the fans as well. It’s something special.

“I think we all want to stay there but we all have to be realistic. There are only four places in England and there are seven or eight clubs competing.

“There are probably two clubs you could say are guaranteed to be in that top four. You then have two places for six clubs. The odds are stacked against you.

“But what we won’t do is jeopardise the club to challenge to be one of those two. You can’t run the club on the basis of being in the Champions League.”
