Tottenham Hotspur boss, Jose Mourinho, has claimed that he would not be disappointed by Europa League football next season in North London.
This comes after the Lilywhites have played four consecutive seasons in the Champions League under Mauricio Pochettino.
Tottenham are currently nine points behind Chelsea in fourth this season, meaning only a minor miracle would see the Lilywhites overtake their London rivals.
With just seven games left to go, Spurs also find themselves seven points behind both Wolves and Man United, although they have a game in hand on both.
While fifth place would usually represent Europa League football, it may bring with it Champions League qualification this season depending on the outcome of Man City’s European ban appeal.
Spurs were lingering in 14th position in the Premier League after 12 games when Pochettino was sacked and Mourinho was hired.
Therefore, the Special One has claimed that, all things considered, he would not be disappointed with Europa League football.
When asked about playing Europa League next year in his Zoom pre-match press conference, Jonathan Veal reported that Mourinho said: “If I put myself in my day one and where the team was and everything that happens I would say I would not be disappointed because the situation was incredible.”
