Venables on Spurs’ top four chances

Former Spurs and England manager Terry Venables is backing Spurs as a candidate to break into the top four of the Premiership this season.

Venables told The Sun: “It would be great for football if someone could gatecrash the big four this season. And if anyone is going to do that, it has to be Spurs.

“Manager Ramos has made some brilliant signings and shown real imagination and forward thinking.

“He has brought in flair players like Luka Modric and Giovani Dos Santos, who will perform in the Tottenham tradition and will also really capture the imagination of the White Hart Lane supporters.”
