Jamie Carragher has stated that Tottenham must win some silverware if they are to keep their best players at the club.
The North London side has started the new campaign in fine form and are unbeaten since the opening day of the season.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men appear to have more resolve and heart than in previous years, with finishing in the top four the ultimate goal for the Lilywhites this term.
Despite the prestige and appeal of the Champions League, Carragher has stated that Spurs must start to win competitions if they are to keep their best players.
The former England international has stated that Pochettino must deliver silverware to keep the young stars at his disposal happy at White Hart Lane.
“Nothing will ever convince me, though, that the feeling of ending a big day out with a medal in your hand can be beaten and Tottenham’s players, for all their undoubted ability, need to experience it. Their supporters have also been waiting too long,” Carragher wrote in The Daily Mail.
“So now is the time for Tottenham to capitalise. Now is the time for them to invest and progress and see if Pochettino can guide them to a period like they enjoyed at the start of the 1980s, when they won back-to-back FA Cups and a UEFA Cup. That is what Tottenham should be about.”
Spurs beat Monaco 4-1 at home on Thursday night to power their way through to the next stage of the Europa League.
They are back in domestic action this weekend, hosting Newcastle at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
