Spurs Defender Warns CL Rivals Like Man Utd: We Can Fight On Four Fronts

Tottenham Hotspur defender Federico Fazio has warned the White Hart Lane club’s Champions League rivals that they can continue to compete on four fronts this season, as reported by the Daily Star.

The north London side face a replay against Burnley in the FA Cup, having been pegged back after going ahead in the clash.

They now have a staggering fixture pile up, which means they face two games every week until the middle of March, except for one week.

Spurs are through to the semi-final of the Capital One Cup, facing off with League One side Sheffield United during that period of time.

Fazio’s side have another opportunity at silverware, having reached the final 32 of the Europa League, where they face Fiorentina.

They are also pushing for a Champions League place, hitting fifth in the Premier League, and face one of their major rivals for that, Manchester United, in the coming weeks.

Fazio believes they can juggle the four competitions, and said: “Can we win one or two cups? It’s possible, of course.

“We are in the semi-finals of the Capital One and we need to fight in all competitions.

“We are alive in the Europa League, too, and now we need to think about the next games in the Premier League and fight for our objectives, like qualifying for the Champions League next season.

“The squad is big enough. It’s good for our objectives. We are trying to fight in all competitions and that is good. It works for the team and we need to keep playing well as a unit.

“In the last eight or nine matches, we have played very well, we haven’t lost and this is good for our confidence.

“And we also beat Chelsea, one of the top teams in the world.”
