Tottenham have come in for a fair bit of criticism recently after being knocked out of the Carabao Cup as well as the FA Cup. The results against Chelsea and Crystal Palace meant that Spurs will have to likely wait at least a year longer before they can put an end to their eleven-year trophy drought.
After the game, Pochettino insisted that finishing in the top four on a consistent basis is more important for the club’s long-term future than winning a domestic trophy, and received a lot of criticism for the statement.
Spurs captain Hugo Lloris has now assured fans that the club are growing step by step and that they eventually hope to be on the same level as footballing giants such as Real Madrid or Barcelona.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the Spurs captain said that the stadium will transform the club’s fortunes.
The Frenchman also talked about how much the team has improved during his time and North London and said that qualifying for the Champions League for three seasons in a row is no easy feat.
Watch Lloris’ interview below:
"We are reducing the gap every season, coming closer, and the only way to go is to keep trying."
