Toby Alderweireld insists that Tottenham will have to improve to secure a place in the Champions League

“Next season we need to go again and get better”: Toby Alderweireld insists Tottenham will need to improve to secure a spot in the Champions League after falling short this year

  • Toby Alderweireld has sworn that Tottenham will return to the Champions League
  • The tracks will certainly fall short this season after a largely mixed fortune
  • The Belgian defender maintains that the club will bounce back, but must improve first
  • Tottenham had reached the final of the Champions League at the end of last season

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld has vowed that his side will return to the Champions League as soon as possible.

Spurs are in a battle to qualify for the Europa League after an inconsistent season, but their hopes were bolstered with a 2-1 win over Arsenal over North London on Sunday.

But if they miss the top four, it means that they will not compete in Europe for the first time since 2015 and just 12 months after they reached the final.

Alderweireld says it shows how far they’ve come as a club and has promised their absence won’t be long.

“That’s football. It’s bad for us now, but I think back to when I came to Spurs (in 2015) and they hadn’t won the championship in over 50 years, “he said.

“Every year we had the opportunity to qualify, so it’s positive that people think we should be there, and of course we should be in the Champions League.

“That is the path the club has taken and I am very proud of that.

“Maybe we can’t achieve that this season, but we have to stick together and next season we have to go again and be better than this season.”

Despite their inconsistency and the feeling that this team is approaching the end of a cycle, the Belgian defender insists that Jose Mourinho is at the helm to bounce back.

“We don’t accept it, but we have to deal with it professionally by ending this season well and then trying again next season.”

“This team is taking steps and we have a nice big stadium and things like that,” he said. “Even the team and manager we have is a huge difference from a few years ago. It better be.

“Everyone has worked so hard for it. It hurts that we may not make it this season, but it gives us more motivation to go next season.

“But our first focus is on the remaining games of this season and then we will reflect for next season.

“We want to do better – that’s why everyone is doing their best – but it’s just not our season.

“We don’t accept it, but we have to deal with it professionally by ending this season well and then trying again next season.”
