Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Eric Dier admits the club will only have achieved something once they win their first silverware under manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs finished in the top four of the Premier League in two consecutive seasons for the first time in the club's history in 2016 and 2017, under the guidance of Pochettino. 

However, Dier believes that only trophies will be able to give the players a real feeling of accomplishment. The north London club finished third and second in the league over the last two campaigns.

"I think we should be proud of what we've managed to do so far, but I don't think we can be proud of achieving anything because I don't think we have,” he said, according to the Evening Standard

“We can be proud of where we are now, considering where we've come from. I think we can definitely be proud of that. But as a group, I think we wouldn't be happy unless we won something.

"The manager is very ambitious, and we've created a fantastic working environment where everyone is really hungry for success. That just came out on the pitch."
