Spurs turn to Champions League goal

Tottenham defender William Gallas has revealed that his thinking immediately turned to next season’s goals as soon as Manchester City confirmed their victory with the final whistle on Tuesday.

Tottenham resigned to finishing out of the top four as a Peter Crouch own goal sealed a 1-0 win for City at Eastlands.

But Gallas isn’t focusing on the disappointment of not qualifying for Champions League; he’s just looking to start next season on top.

"I'm looking forward to it,” Gallas told the official Tottenham website.


“We will work hard in pre-season, speak together and be ready for the start of the season.

"We'll take it game by game and before the games will know what we have to say and what we have to do. I think it's important to start very well."

Gallas said while it has been a difficult week coping with being knocked out of the Champions League – particularly when Tottenham did so well this season, making the quarter final – looking forwards and setting new goals is on the agenda in the Tottenham dressing room.

"I'm sure all the [Tottenham] players are upset now. It's the best competition in Europe and you want to play and compete against the big clubs in Europe,” Gallas said.

"But like I said, next season we have to be sure we start very well and I think our target will be to play in the Champions League again."
