Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy admits they're not "too big" to go down after explaining why Martin Jol was dismissed earlier this season.
He said: "When you are running a club of this size with our cost base, you can't afford to take the risk that you may end up in a very, very bad situation.
"No club is too big to be relegated, and we reached a stage where we weren't winning at all. You could look on the players, and there was a point where he had lost the confidence of the players. That sometimes happens in football - you go on a losing streak and there's a point of no return. If you get yourself into a situation where you're just not getting the points, in the end it does cause problems.
"I want to welcome Martin Jol back to this club one day. It's a very friendly relationship and I just want to draw a line under the whole thing."
