Jol believes chairman Levyâ€™s demand for a top-four finish did not match the investment in the team during his spell in North London.
â€śSo to tell me that we had to be in the top four was a bit too much for us.
â€śWe had different players then with Pascal Chimbonda, Erik Edman and Stephen Kelly and that is different to what they have now.â€ť
Jol added: â€śSpurs have wanted to be in the Champions League for the last six or seven years and they wonâ€™t be pleased if they donâ€™t achieve that this year.
â€śBut I think they deserve to be there because they were in the top four all the time.â€ť
