Harry Redknapp says that the expectations put on his team by supporters and some experts are too high.
Following Tottenham’s first ever Champions League campaign many fans and pundits think that the club should qualify for that competition next season.
However that goal received a major dent yesterday, after Spurs could only draw 2-2 against West Brom.
Following that game Redknapp said that his team still has a chance of finishing fourth, but criticised those, who say it would be an underachievement if they do not.
”It’s going to be difficult but it’s still all to play for,” he insisted.
“I find it hard that now everyone expects us to be in the Champions League,” he then added.
“Tottenham had never been in it before until this season and suddenly it is like ‘we have to be in the Champions League’.
“Manchester City have gone out and spent God knows what to get above us. Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are there every year, Liverpool will be there next year. It’s difficult to get fourth. It has been a great season but it’s not over yet.”
Tottenham face a trip to Stamford Bridge next weekend in one of their crucial final matches.
