Tottenham still have plenty of room to grow, but that hasn't stopped some from acknowledging the strides they've made in their first season under new management.

Tottenham's 2023/2024 season was admittedly a difficult one to predict between the outgoing of the club's all-time leading goalscorer, and the incoming of a new gaffer.

Nonetheless, Spurs were able to finish the season in fifth, clinching a spot in European football with the upcoming year's Europa League; And while for some the result was less than desirable, there were still plenty of onlookers who thought the outcome was praiseworthy.

One such supporter was former Spurs midfielder Jamie O'Hara.

Speaking with Grosvenor Sport (via The Spurs Web), O'Hara stated that “Last season, Tottenham lost Harry Kane and still finished fifth... It was where they lost four on the bounce – they lacked that cutting edge and it’s a shame. I don’t think they can be disappointed [though], if you offered them fifth and an exciting style of football, they’d have taken it."

Continuing, the midfielder added, "Last season has provided Tottenham with something to build on, it was Ange’s first season in charge and they have got to kick on."

The Australian manager has certainly worked to hammer home the message of building a foundation upon which the players and the rest of the club can build to create something long lasting.

"They have to strengthen and sign some good players; they’ve got European competitions and cup competitions to go at next year, which I’m excited to see them participate in,” O'Hara concluded.

Tottenham's fixture list has already been announced, and with the circulation of transfer rumors aplenty, it seems that the next season is just around the corner.

Spurs supporters will hope that O'Hara's excitement is well-placed, and that Ange and co. will bring the high-intensity level of football that the club has recently come to be known for.
