Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has named the three Tottenham stars he feels are crucial to the club’s future success.
Spurs have enjoyed being part of the Premier League title race for the two successive seasons, first being pipped to the post by shock winners Leicester before finishing as runners-up to Chelsea as the Blues stormed their way to the title.
The club also managed to reach the FA Cup semi finals last season, and they will be hoping to push on from their impressive displays.
However, Gary Neville has said that striker Harry Kane, midfielder Dele Alli and manager Mauricio Pochettino are all key figures in ensuring success at the North London side, and has urged chairman Daniel Levy to build around the trio.
The pundit told Sky Sports: “Dele Alli, Pochettino and Kane aren’t going anywhere. Daniel Levy wouldn’t let them go anywhere.
“They need to build around what they’re doing. They can’t sell Kane and Alli and let Pochettino go.
“With the stadium being built and them starting there next season, with the season tickets, the hospitality, the incredible stadium, one of the best in the country, they’re not going anywhere.
“It would be a deflated new stadium if they did. There’s so much invested in it.”
Tottenham are currently at their temporary home of Wembley, as they wait for their traditional stadium White Hart Lane to undergo renovations.
However they have not enjoyed the best of starts at the national stadium, and are yet to win a Premier League game there after defeat to Chelsea and draws against Burnley and Swansea.
However Tottenham’s away form has been outstanding, and has helped them pick up 14 points this season to sit third in the table, behind only Manchester United and Manchester City.
They have also enjoyed a perfect start to their Champions League campaign, having picked up wins over both Borussia Dortmund and Apoel Nicosia.
There next European tie comes after the international break, with a match against Bournemouth in the league coming before a visit to reigning champions Real Madrid in Spain.
In other Tottenham news, Kyle Walker has made a surprise admission following his departure from the club.
