FA Cup

Tottenham FA Cup Exit: 15 Years Quest For Major Trophy Continues

Tottenham's quest for a major trophy continues as they have not won a significant title in 15 years, with their last victory being the League Cup in 2008. Moreover, the club has been eliminated at the FA Cup fifth-round stage for four consecutive years, including their recent defeat against Sheffield United.

Unless Tottenham can produce a remarkable performance against AC Milan next week to overcome their 1-0 deficit in the second leg of their round of 16 Champions League tie at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the club will face another season without a trophy.

The head coach, Antonio Conte, missed the team's most recent cup exit due to gallbladder surgery, and his assistant coach, Cristian Stellini, apologized to the club's fans. Stellini admitted that the team had missed a crucial opportunity, and with 5,000 fans watching the game, the apology was necessary.

Tottenham's defeat at Sheffield United was painful, considering they made six changes after Sunday's victory against Chelsea, and star striker Harry Kane was left on the bench due to illness.

Stellini also disclosed that Kane had been struggling with his health. Some fans are left questioning why Kane was absent from the game, considering the team had a talented lineup that included Heung-min Son and Richarlison.

Tottenham's FA Cup exit puts Kane's future in the spotlight. Senior Writer at ESPN Mark Ogden believes that Spurs cannot complain if Kane decides to leave the club to win trophies.

Despite Kane's significant contributions to Spurs, he has not won a major title yet. In contrast, Marcus Rashford has won his fourth significant trophy with Manchester United, which reflects poorly on Spurs. Tottenham's exit from the FA Cup has shown that the team cannot be relied on to perform consistently.
