Tottenham Hotspur have enjoyed dining at the top table of European football under the leadership of Mauricio Pochettino.
Last season, the Argentine guided the North London club to the final of the Champions League before falling short against Liverpool.
Spurs have struggled in the Premier League during the opening months of the current campaign which saw them in the lowly position of twelfth place in the table going into the international break having won just three of their opening twelve fixtures.
The club are at serious risk of missing out on qualification for next season’s competition unless they drastically turn their poor form around.
Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp, who guided the club to the knockout stages during his time in charge believes it would be a massive blow if they fail to finish on the top four.
Spurs are currently eleven points behind Manchester City in fourth place, with Redknapp having expected Pochettino’s team to challenge for the title this season.
He told Sky Sports: “It’s strange, you have spells when things don’t go your way but I really thought they would push Liverpool and Manchester City close for the title this season,”
“But at the moment they are looking like they are going to struggle to even make the top four.
“It would be a massive blow if they didn’t make the Champions League, the money that has been invested in the training ground and the stadium, anything less than Champions League qualification would be a poor season.”
