Jason Cundy has delivered a critical verdict of Tottenham by stating that they are “treading water” and are in a strange position right now.
Ex-Spurs defender Cundy is concerned about his former side and is frustrated that they can’t get over the line for silverware.
Mauricio Pochettino has taken the North London club forward massively during his reign as manager and they are now Champions League regulars, but the dark cloud hanging over him is winning no trophies.
Spurs once again blew a two-goal lead on Wednesday night, as they drew 2-2 away to Greek club Olympiacos in the Champions League group stages.
They made the final of last season’s elite club European competition, before losing to English opponents Liverpool.
Cundy has been left confused about where Spurs can go moving forward.
“Tonight’s performance [against Olympiacos] for Spurs sums them up a little bit, they are the nearly men,” Cundy told talkSPORT.
“Spurs are in a really odd position now, a really strange scenario. They have got the shiny new stadium, one of the best strikers in the world, one of the best managers in the world.
“But they are not going anywhere. They are treading water. They are nearly men.”
Spurs have had a bit of a rocky start to the new season, but most teams in England would do anything to swap positions with them.
Pochettino has managed to turn the club into one of the elite sides in English football right now and they are now consistently finishing in the top end of the Premier League table.
It’s obvious that the entire Spurs group are desperate to get their hands on a trophy and they do have the quality within their ranks to do that, which is why perhaps they should prioritise a domestic cup this campaign.
They are certainly not a club in turmoil or one treading water right now, but they just need a slice of luck to get them over the line.
