David Ginola insists Tottenham CAN finish in the top four this season

David Ginola insists Tottenham CAN finish in the top four this season as he believes their destiny rests in their own hands after rout of Newcastle… with club legend claiming their remaining games are ‘very simple’

  • Tottenham are looking to secure a Champions League place this season
  • They are currently fourth in the Premier League table, above rivals Arsenal
  • Ginola says it will be ‘very simple’ for Tottenham to hold onto that position 
  • The former Spurs winger insists Tottenham’s ‘destiny’ is in their own hands 

David Ginola says it will be ‘very simple’ for Tottenham to secure a Champions League spot this season and insists their ‘destiny’ is in their own hands.    

Antonio Conte tried to manage expectations around the North London side ahead of their clash with Newcastle by saying they would need a ‘miracle’ to finish in fourth place this season.  

However, Ginola disagrees. The former Spurs winger – who made 100 Premier League appearances during his three-year spell at Tottenham – says they will secure a top four finish if ‘they play the way we know they can play.’ 

David Ginola is confident that Tottenham can finish the current season inside the top four 

However, Ginola does not believe a Champions League spot will secure Harry Kane’s services 

When asked whether Spurs would need a miracle to finish in the top four, Ginola told Sky Sports: ‘A miracle? I don’t think so. 

‘I mean, if they win all their games until the end of the season then they will finish in the top four. 

‘Of course it depends on Arsenal, it depends on Chelsea, on other teams but they have got their destiny in their hands. 

‘If they play the way we know they can play. If they have no injuries and the players realise their duty towards the end of the season.

‘We look at the remaining fixtures and it’s very simple of Spurs.’ 

Spurs have won four of their last five Premier League games, with Harry Kane playing a pivotal role in their success. 

Kane was named as the Premier League Player of the Month for a joint-record seventh time on Friday. 

The England captain has scored four goals and registered two assists for Tottenham over the last month.  

Meanwhile, Tottenham’s 12 goals in March have marked the highest return by any Premier League side. 

However, Tottenham’s current form may not be enough to keep hold of Kane, according to Ginola. 

He said: ‘For a player of his calibre, playing year-in, year-out, just to be in the top four, it’s not enough.

‘If he’s got propositions in the future to play with clubs who will challenge for and win trophies, that’s where he could [leave]. At the end of your career, what you look at is the list of trophies that you won.’
