Tottenham Hotspur defender William Gallas believes Spurs can become the biggest club in London, providing they win some trophies.
Despite their recent invasion of the top four, they have still only won two pieces of silverware in nearly 22 years – the League Cup in both 1999 and 2008.
And 35-year-old Gallas who has played for both Spurs’ biggest London rivals – Chelsea and Arsenal - thinks the club have the potential and are well positioned to overtake their London-enemies should they add more trophies to their cabinet.
“Tottenham can be the biggest club but for that they have to win some trophies and then they will start to be the biggest club in London,” Gallas was quoted as saying in the London Evening Standard.
“We have to win some trophies, and then I think people will start to respect Tottenham more. The fans will be more proud to walk with their shirts on their backs but we need to lift trophies. It is as simple as that.”
Spurs face Inter Milan on Thursday night looking to secure a Europa League quarter-final spot. The north London outfit travel to Italy with a 3-0 advantage in a competition they have a very good chance of winning.
Although not expected to be offered a new deal at White Hart Lane when his contract runs out this summer, Gallas, who signed in 2010, has been an significant member of the Spurs squad that has seen them challenge at the top end of the table in recent seasons.
