Tottenham's season looks destined to end in failure thanks to Harry Redknapp's reluctance to rotate his squad, according to Spurs defender Vedran Corluka.

Despite at one stage being 12 points clear of third-placed Arsenal, Tottenham are now fifth in the Barclays Premier League table following a dismal run of one win in their last nine matches. After spending a fraction of the amount spent by their rivals, Redknapp maintains a top-four finish should be viewed as an extraordinary achievement - but Corluka disagrees.

"Tottenham, for me, had one of the best teams in England and of course it will be an unsuccessful season if they don't go to the Champions League," the defender, who is currently on loan at Bayer Leverkusen, told the BBC.
