Can Tottenham Hotspur win a trophy this season?
Although the former Liverpool defender has praised Spurs for their recent performances and progress under manager Mauricio Pochettino, he has suggested that the players do not have a winning mentality.
“For me, the one thing the team lacks is that winning mentality,” Carragher wrote in The Telegraph. “Do those players truly believe they can win the big trophies?
“Is there something about Spurs as a club that means the general lack of expectation they will win the top honours impacts on the mentality of the players?
“For this to change there is an emphasis on the need to retain their stars such as Dele Alli and Harry Kane. No. The most important man they must keep is Pochettino.”
Tottenham have not won a major trophy for years, and that is something that the current group of players will be well aware of.
Manager Pochettino himself will be determined to win something, and perhaps Spurs will this season.
However, one must remember that not all teams can win trophies in a single season, and that does not constitute a failure.
Although winning the Premier League would be a massive for Tottenham, it would still be a success if they end up in the top four.
One must also note that Spurs have progressed to the last-16 stage of the Champions League as well this season.
Who know, Tottenham could well go all the way in the Champions League this season…
