‘That can only breed success’ – Spurs star speaks out on incredible squad

Tottenham Hotspur have not won a piece of major silverware for over 11 years, with the 2008 Carling Cup being their last trophy victory.

Spurs almost put an end to that drought in style last season in the most prestigious club football competition out there, the Champions League.

The Lilywhites made it out of a group with Barcelona, Inter Milan, and PSV, before knocking out Borussia Dortmund, Man City, and Ajax to reach the final.

Unfortunately, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool proved to be a step too far for Pochettino’s men and they lost 2-0 to a first-minute penalty and late Origi strike.

However, despite the lack of glory days in recent years, young Harry Winks insists that the trophies are just around the corner for Tottenham.

Winks came through the academy at Spurs, before being given his big chance under Pochettino, and he now wears the number 8 shirt at his boyhood club.

Harry Winks said (BBC): “As long as we keep believing in what we have to do, I’m sure [trophies] are round the corner.

“Everybody is ambitious in the squad. Of course, there comes a time when players want to start winning trophies. But there is a bigger picture at Tottenham.

“You can feel the family atmosphere the manager has created.

“Everyone gets on really well. There are no big egos – no-one gets on better with one person than anyone else.

“We obviously have incredible talent in the squad but when you have that, mixed with humble attitudes and players who want to improve, that can only breed success.

“The manager brought me through at the age of 17 to where I am today. It has been an incredible journey and one I want to stay on.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

I believe that Poch needs to build his team around Harry Kane and Harry Winks. Both are Mr Tottenham and both are absolute class in their respective positions. Kane is already one of the best in the world, but I believe Winks can get there too.
