Tottenham slumped to yet another defeat in the league after a 2-1 loss against Stoke City during the weekend. This was the fourth home loss of the season for new manager Mauricio Pochettino. This has led to the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor suggesting that the club would be happy to play away from home at this point in time. The former Southampton boss has promised to improve things, but the club are already facing the prospect of another season without Champions League. Worse still, their former player Les Ferdinand has insisted that the club appears to have lost its identity due to changes from above.
The club has gone through a lot of changes in the last 12 months after the sale of Gareth Bale. He, however, is not the only big name to have been sold by the club. Over the years, chairman Daniel Levy has put the club in an extremely promising financial position, but this has come with the sacrifice of results. Spurs have had Champions League ambitions for a long time, but they have been in this prestigious European competition only once in their history. Ferdinand played for the club between 1997 and 2003. Even under Harry Redknapp, the club maintained its reputation as one of the attractive teams in England.
“You feel for Pochettino because it seems Tottenham for a long time are trying to change their identity and they have done that now. They have done it at the expense of the football club, they have changed their identity behind the scenes and they have changed their identity on the football pitch as they haven’t got one. Pochettino has come in and inherited players that perhaps he wouldn’t have chosen himself but they were there and he has had to work with them,” said Ferdinand.
