Glenn Hoddle says now is the time for Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur are in the midst of a wonderful campaign but how long can they keep it going?

Former Tottenham Hotspur player and manager Glenn Hoddle has been speaking to Omnisport about Mauricio Pochettino’s current squad, with his comments later published online by FourFourTwo.

Tottenham have impressed so far this season and despite recently losing their impressive 14-match undefeated streak in the league, they find themselves occupying the final Champions League qualifying place heading towards the New Year.

Pochettino has built a successful team blending youth and experience to give the Tottenham fans plenty to be excited about in 2016, but Hoddle believes the chance of finishing in the top four this season is something Tottenham cannot throw away.

“Now is the time for Spurs,” Hoddle said. “It’s a big season for them to jump into that top four.

“Whether they can stay in that top four for years to come with that squad remains to be seen but I think it’s a great opportunity, one that they didn’t think was going to happen.”

This season’s Premier League is more unpredictable than most and at this stage of the campaign there is no telling who will win the title, who will finish in the top four and who will miss out in European football altogether.

But one thing for certain is that Tottenham have the players, the manager and the ethos to become a hugely successful side in England and Europe once more; let’s just hope they can push on in 2016 and beyond.
