Tottenham Hotspur take on RB Leipzig on Tuesday this week as they look to progress to the next round of the Champions League this season.
However, the Lilywhites not only find themselves 1-0 down from the first leg, but also one away goal down, meaning they will have to travel to Germany with goals in mind.
Spurs have been sub-par both in attack and defensively of late, not helped by the injuries to Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, and Moussa Sissoko.
In order to achieve Champions League qualification for next season, Spurs must either win the competition this year or qualify in the top four of the Premier League. This may extend to the top five if Man City’s European ban goes through (BBC).
Daniel Levy has now told the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust that a budget was set for the summer, but a lack of Champions League qualification would impact things all round.
The minutes of the meeting included:
‘Funds were ring-fenced for the summer however not qualifying for Champions League would have an impact all around.
‘DL commented that external perceptions of transfers can be different from the facts and also to what a manager might wish to do.’
