Tottenham Hotspur have started the season in terrible fashion having only managed to win three of their opening twelve Premier League matches.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side find themselves in twelfth place in the table and are already eleven points worse off than Manchester City who currently occupy fourth place.
Should Spurs fail to return to winning ways after the international break, they run the risk of being too far adrift from Champions League qualification.
A failure to qualify for European football’s most prestigious club competition will not only affect the club’s finances, but also the calibre of player they will be able to attract.
After making it to the final of the Champions League, Spurs were said to be leading the race for PSV Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn (Sky Sports).
A deal failed to materialise and the Dutch international remained with the Eredivisie outfit.
It is now being reported that Bergwijn is only interested in leaving PSV if he moves to a club who can offer him Champions League football (Daily Star).
Tottenham’s failure to secure his signature last summer looks to have backfired with given current form, they will not be dining at the top table of European football next season.
