13 years ago, Tottenham Hotspur lifted their last trophy despite being on one of the 12 founding clubs of the European Super League, which is now an abandoned tournament after receiving strong criticisms from football fans.
The Spurs came close to ending their 13-year trophy-less streak in the League Cup final against Manchester City during the 2020/21 campaign. They lost 1-0 at Wembley Stadium, this means that the Spurs will have to wait for a while to end their trophy drought.
When was the last time Tottenham Won A Trophy?
The North London side last won a trophy in February 2008, when they were able to overcome Chelsea in a 2-1 victory in the League Cup final, with Spanish manager Juande Ramos taking the reigns as manager at the time.
The North London club supporters witness a rise for their club in the 2010s, especially when Mauricio Pochettino became their head coach in 2014, he was able to lead the club to finish second place in the 2016/17 campaign, which was their best place since 1962/1963 season.
While Tottenham Hotspur is usually referred to as one of the Big 6 in English football, they are yet to claim a Premier League title since its establishment in 1992.
Tottenham last league title was won in 1961 under the reign of Sir Alfred Ernest Ramsey, who went on to helped England come out as champions in the 1966 FIFA World Cup.
The Spurs once again came close to ending their trophy-less streak after in the UEFA Champions League final for 2018/19 at the Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid. But they ended up losing to their Premier League rivals, Liverpool, in a 2-0 defeat that was seen on Live Football Streaming at the time. That was also Tottenham first appearance in a Champions League final.
Argentine coach Pochettino, who led them to the final, was sacked by the club following a poor start to the 2019/20 Premier League season. Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho was signed to replace the Argentine manager, but he was only appointed for 17 months before he was sacked by the club after failing to meet expectations.
Mourinho, who was able to lift at least three trophies in every club he managed in his managerial career, was brought in as a new hope of Tottenham to win a silverware, but the Portuguese were ultimately sacked days before the club’s most recent shot at a trophy this season in the League Cup final against Manchester City.
Following the departure of the Portuguese manager, Ryan Mason took the reigns as the new manager at the White Hart Lane. But he was also unable to win any silverware for the club.
Mason (29 years, 316 days) became the youngest manager to lead a team in a League cup final, surpassing Italian head coach Gianluca Vialli with Chelsea back in 1998 (33 years, 263 days).
Tottenham Hotspur was able to end their 2020/21 Premier League season seventh on the table, failing to qualify for Champions League or Europa League. They will have a shot in the UEFA Europa Conference League next season.
Tottenham Hotspur was the first British team to win two different major European titles, won two UEFA Cups, two league titles, four league cup trophies, eight FA Cups, seven FA Community Shields, and one European Cup Winners’ Cup.
