Tottenham star Nacer Chadli's tweet reveals mindset, proves Merson wrong

Nacer Chadli

Nacer Chadli is determined Tottenham give their all as the season draws to a close.

Tottenham Hotspur attacker Nacer Chadli scored in the club's 3-1 win at Newcastle at the weekend as the side got back into a winning habit.

Spurs had just one point from their previous two fixtures against Burnley and Aston Villa, leading to criticism the club were simply allowing their impressive season to peter out.

Paul Merson had told SkySports last week he felt both Spurs and Newcastle's players would rather have been at the beach at the weekend, and while that may have been true of John Carver's side, Tottenham showed they were still hungry to put in a strong performance.

Chadli sent a message out on Twitter on Monday proclaiming the team's reaction, insisting they have six more finals ahead as they push to finish strongly at the end of this season.

While some fans may harbour wishes they would ease off to ensure they do not qualify for the Europa League next season, for those paying to watch the team week in and week out, it is good news that their money will be spent watching players who have a determined mindset not to let their standards slip.

Spurs' next game is a crucial one against Southampton, who they currently lead by one point. They are seven behind fourth placed Manchester City who got back to winning ways by beating West Ham at the weekend.
