Jol believes chairman Levy‚Äôs demand for a top-four finish did not match the investment in the team during his spell in North London.
‚ÄúSo to tell me that we had to be in the top four was a bit too much for us.
‚ÄúWe had different players then with Pascal Chimbonda, Erik Edman and Stephen Kelly and that is different to what they have now.‚ÄĚ
Jol added: ‚ÄúSpurs have wanted to be in the Champions League for the last six or seven years and they won‚Äôt be pleased if they don‚Äôt achieve that this year.
‚ÄúBut I think they deserve to be there because they were in the top four all the time.‚ÄĚ
