Missing the Champions League is not the end of the world for Spurs boss.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has said that there is no chance of star man Gareth Bale leaving the club despite missing out on the Champions League and has insisted that the club’s future plans won’t be affected by missing out on qualifying for the competition, talkSPORT reports.
Spurs narrowly missed out on qualifying for Europe’s most elite club competition on the final day despite beating Sunderland 1-0 as Arsenal managed to pip them to the post by claiming their own single goal victory over Newcastle United.
And the Former Chelsea manager has insisted that the club’s ambitions will not be damaged by failing to qualify for the tournament and has highlighted the fact that this season has seen Spurs pick up more points in the Premier League than ever before.
“It’s disappointing and we can’t hide from that. We had expectations to go through but what we can learn is 72 points next time round might not be enough,” he said.
When asked about the future of Gareth Bale he said: “I have told you this a hundred times and I have to say once again [he won’t go]. This has been an ongoing question. We have to keep our ambitions high, hold on to our best players.
“For us to make it better in the future we have to hold on to the best.”
