Stubborn Spurs star refuses to back Hammers Euro bid


Tottenham might find themselves relying on a favour from West Ham to secure Champions League qualification this season, although Spurs defender Micky Van de Ven seems unwilling to acknowledge that possibility.

When questioned about the intricacies of UEFA coefficient points and the potential significance of fifth place, Van de Ven responded, “We’re not focusing on fifth. We want to be fourth or even higher. We just want to ensure that we don’t have to worry about the standings at the end of the season.”

Currently, Italy leads the coefficient rankings, but the race for the second bonus Champions League qualification spot is primarily between England and Germany, with Germany currently holding the advantage.

While Van de Ven denies any intention of following West Ham’s upcoming Europa League clash with Bayer Leverkusen closely, he acknowledges the significance of the Hammers quarter-final match for Tottenham.

“We’ll keep an eye on it, but it’s not like I’ll be rooting for West Ham. We just aim to secure a position that guarantees Champions League football next year,” he added.

However, there’s another scenario that hasn’t been widely considered—perhaps West Ham wins the Europa League, securing an additional Champions League spot for ourselves . . . Stubborn Micky definitely won’t be cheering for that outcome.
