Former Tottenham Hotspur Players Have Won 116 Trophies After Leaving Since Spurs Last Won Anything

Former Tottenham Hotspur Players Have Won 116 Trophies After Leaving Since Spurs Last Won Anything

Etienne Capoue and Juan Foyth’s victory for Villarreal in the Europa League makes it 116 occasions a former Tottenham Hotspur player has won something since the club last did.

Spurs won the League Cup in 2008 when Jonathan Woodgate’s extra time goal gave them a 2-1 victory over Chelsea.

It wasn’t the launchpad to a successful spell in north London that their fans would have hoped for and they are yet to win a trophy since.

The club have had many talented players since 2008 and have reached finals, including the Champions League in 2019 and the Carabao Cup this year, and some of those players have won silverware since 2008, just not with the club of course.

Lots of numbers have been doing the rounds but one fan worked out that former Tottenham players have lifted 114 trophies in the past 13 years, and that was before Capoue and Foyth got their hands on the Europa League.

Of course Luka Modric and Gareth Bale have won a majority of the trophies by those players, with the two Real Madrid players racking up 29 of the 116 between them.

The pair have both won La Liga on three occasions since moving to Spain and also won an incredible four Champions League titles, including the unprecedented three in-a-row under Zinedine Zidane.

Modric has also won the Ballon d’Or since moving from Tottenham, helping Croatia to a World Cup final in the process.

Jermain Defoe, Christian Eriksen, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Kyle Walker all added league titles to their trophy cabinets this season, whilst Spurs finished seventh in the Premier League.

On Saturday, Spurs could see Kyle Walker add a 119th trophy to the list when Manchester City face Chelsea in the Champions League final.

It goes to show exactly why Harry Kane wants to leave the club at the end of the season, as he hopes to win silverware.

Perhaps he’ll be swayed by Thursday’s news that the club want to bring Mauricio Pochettino back to replace Jose Mourinho.
