Ex-cricketer Michael Vaughan has ripped into Tottenham and stated this so-called “fantastic” side has won “nowt”.
The former England captain believes the club’s Champions League campaign was “shambolic” after they were knocked out of the group stages earlier on in the season.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side secured the runners-up spot on Sunday afternoon after they beat Manchester United 2-1 in their final match at White Hart Lane.
For the second consecutive season, Spurs have secured Champions League football and narrowly missed out on the title to Leicester last term and now Chelsea.
However, former 2005 Ashes winner, Vaughan clearly wasn’t impressed with the north London club’s campaign.
“All this talk of Tottenham being fantastic team, they were shambolic in the Champions League and have won nowt,” Vaughan wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Pochettino’s side played their Champions League home games at Wembley this season as they suffered two defeats during those matches.
On top of that, they were knocked out of the semi-final’s of FA Cup at the hands of Chelsea in April.
Ex-players have lauded the north London club for the manner in which they have performed during the past two seasons under the highly-rated Pochettino.
But, at this moment in time, they are yet to win any silverware as they will move into a new stadium at the start of the 2018/19 season.
Before that, they will play all their home matches at England’s national stadium as they secured a win in their final match at the Lane.
Boyhood Spurs fan, Harry Kane and midfielder Victor Wanyama were the goalscorers on the day.
