Ange Postecoglou targets Tottenham title challenge next season

Ange Postecoglou targets Tottenham title challenge next season

Ange Postecoglou expects Tottenham to compete for the Premier League title next season.

Spurs face an important game in their attempts to qualify for the Champions League when they take on London rivals West Ham on Tuesday (02.04.24) but Postecoglou wants his team to be targeting top spot a year from now.

The Tottenham boss told Standard Sport: "I hope so, or why am I doing what I’m doing? That’s why I came to the club.

"As somebody said to me last week, ‘Just do your job, Ange’. And my job is to try to bring success - and if you don’t think you’re going to be in the title race in 12 months’ time, then I don’t know why I’m here."

Postecoglou has refused to set Spurs a target of finishing in the top four and has even refused to rule his team out of the season's race as they have to play all of the top three before the end of the campaign.

The Australian coach said: "There’s nine games to go, let’s see where that takes us. I’d rather have that approach than having one specific target.

"It’d probably make my life easier if I said, ‘Let’s make the Champions League’, because everyone thinks I’ve done a great job. But I look at the teams who made the Champions League this year from last year and that wasn’t the catalyst for them kicking on. I’m not going to let this club rest on where we finish this year."
