A final day capitulation for Tottenham in the Barclays Premier League saw the North Londoners whacked 5 – 1 by a ten – man, relegated Newcastle United side on Sunday 15 May and top striker Harry Kane has called on the club’s fans not to grieve but look at the future with positivity.
Spurs only needed a point from their last game to seal a runners-up spot, but collapsed to their worst defeat of the season against a side reduced to 10 men after Aleksandar Mitrovic was sent off on the 67th minute.
The defeat ensured for the 21st straight year, Spurs finish below their bitter rivals Arsenal who beat Aston Villa 4 – 0 to finish second and Kane took to Twitter to apologise to fans.
He asked the fans to look at the bigger picture, with the team having secured a slot in the UEFA Champions League group stages.
“Today wasn’t nowhere near good enough. It shows we are still learning and still have a lot to improve on,” said Kane on Twitter. “But overall with have to see the bigger picture. We are in the Champions League. We have to stay positive and be proud! We have to come next season with ambition!”
