Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino says a return to the Champions League marks the start of a “successful era” for the club.
The White Hart Lane club were involved in the title challenge but ultimately lost out to Leicester City, while fierce rivals Arsenal denied them second place on the final day of the season.
Pochettino has urged his side to forget about any disappointment at the way the campaign finished and focus on the positives as their third-place finish secured a place in next season’s Champions League.
The Argentine manager feels there is more to come from his Spurs side and he is looking forward to taking on Europe’s top sides next season.
“We have to put that to one side, and focus on all the things that we achieved – which was a lot,” he told Fifa TV. “Now we need to think about how we can improve as a group.
“I think the most important thing apart from the results is that we have grown as a team. There’s a new level of togetherness.
“What we can now go on to achieve in the Champions League is very important. This is the beginning of a successful era, because of the potential we have.”
