After Harry’s somewhat controversial claim that Spurs would need a miracle to finish in the top four this season, he has backtracked slightly by saying that the race for Champions League places will be between the teams that currently occupy the top five slots.
Chelsea jumped over Spurs last night with their 2-1 win over Manchester United which leaves us in fifth, one point behind the men from Stamford Bridge and three behind Manchester City, with a game in hand on Roberto Mancini’s team.
Speaking to the press Harry said: “The top five now will be the top five at the end of the season for sure. With Liverpool losing, it is five teams looking for Champions League football next year. It is so important for us and we want to get it again.”
So no mention of the ‘M word’ then from Harry and let’s hope he and everyone around the club believes we will be in the top four come the end of May.
