Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood accepts they could lose their best players if they miss out on Champions League qualification.
But Sherwood believes Tottenham are a big enough club to attract and retain high-class players.
He said: "It's always a risk (losing the players). But Tottenham are a massive club and will always attract the biggest name players. If players are coming here to build and progress with the side, they will pick Tottenham.
"At other clubs, these players will go and sit on bench and pick up championship medals, which is not what I would have done. This club sell themselves and are bigger than any manager.
"It's a massive club, and players will come if they want. They know full well what this club can offer. If the be-all and end-all is the Champions League and we're not in it, they have to make a decision."
