PostSubject: Jol : Spurs can't crack Top 4   Thu May 29 2008, 15:28

Former Tottenham boss Martin Jol has claimed his old club have no chance of breaking into the top four, insisting the financial barrier is simply too great…

The Dutchman was recently unveiled as the new manager of SV Hamburger, his first post after being sacked by Spurs last October following a poor start to the season.

The former ADO Den Haag midfielder, who earned three caps for his country, twice came close to leading the Lilywhites into that rarefied air of Champions League qualification.

In 2006, Spurs went into the final game of the season sitting in fourth place, but lost to surrender the spot to North London rivals Arsenal.

The club have since failed to mount a serious challenge to the traditional table-toppers, but new boss Juande Ramos is keen to remedy, having already signalled his ambition with the ₤16.5 million purchase of Croatian star Luka Modric.

But Jol is less optimistic, insisting the discrepancy in funds between Spurs and the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United is too great to overcome in the foreseeable future.

“When I was with Spurs we finished fifth twice,” he said. “It’s not realistic for Tottenham to be top four because the financial differences are too much. Everton were the last club to do it and that was merely a one-off.”

A very predictable thing for BMJ to say. This implies that did the best job he possibly could have done with the resources he had. Had he said that we are capable of a top 4 finish the obvious next question would be "well why didn't you manage it then?"

fair enough for him to say it but that doesn't mean I agree with all this "top 4" nonsense!

At least he said it after he left his job - Keegan still has his job after saying exactly the same thing about Toon a few weeks ago.
