Jol: We will not be in the Champions League next season

Tottenham boss Martin Jol has said that he does not believe his side is among the top four contenders for the Premiership title this season.

Jol said: “If you look at the quality of the top four clubs, then they are still the top four and we are together with six or seven other teams.

“You can say we did well last year and that this time we have to be in the Champions League – but we are not there yet.

“We have to make a nice mix of good young players and top experienced stars.

“Then hopefully in the next two years we can be contenders for the top four – or maybe even better.”
