Tottenham Hotspur defender Ben Davies has opened up about his disappointment following another trophyless season for the club. Davies, who has been with Spurs since 2014, expressed his belief that the team would finally end their drought in the 2023/24 season.

Despite reaching the final in the EFL Cup twice and the Champions League once during his time at the club, Tottenham has consistently fallen short in major competitions. The last time the club lifted a major trophy was back in 2008 when they won the League Cup.

The 2023/24 campaign under new manager Ange Postecoglou started positively but soon turned into a struggle for Spurs. The team was knocked out of the FA Cup in the fourth round, the League Cup in the second round, and finished fifth in the Premier League, missing out on Champions League qualification.

Davies acknowledged the frustration felt by the players and the club’s supporters, emphasizing the desire to bring silverware to Tottenham. He highlighted the challenges of building a successful team, stating that success in football is not guaranteed by spending money alone.

While Davies had hoped that the 2023/24 season would be the breakthrough year for Spurs, he acknowledged the unpredictable nature of football and the difficulties of achieving success in the sport. Despite the setbacks, Davies remains hopeful that the club has laid a strong foundation for future success and is optimistic about the team’s prospects in the coming years.
