Lloris says top four finish critical for Tottenham future
Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says a top four finish is a must this season.
Lloris believes it is vital for the future of the club that they stay in that position.
Lloris said: "We want to grow and Tottenham need to be in the Champions League. But it's not about playing just one year in that competition, it's about playing there for many years.
"We play this sport to play at the highest level and the Champions League is the best competition for any player. Economically it's an important thing for the club, so maybe the club need it to keep all the best players.
"Our objective is to stay in the top four. We are only one point behind Chelsea, so if we could gain one place it would be a good thing for us. We have great games against Chelsea and Arsenal to come, as well as against Newcastle on Saturday.
"Arsenal's win over Stoke at the weekend put pressure on us and West Brom was a test but we did well."
