David Ginola said his former club Spurs were good enough to challenge for the Premier League title, as he heaped praise on manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Arch rivals Arsenal pipped Spurs to fourth place and with it a spot in the Champions League last season, but Ginola -- who played for Tottenham between 1997 and 2000 -- wants the Londoners to set their sights higher still.
David Ginola: "Finishing in the top four will be something obvious for Tottenham, my question is -- and the question people should ask -- are Tottenham capable of challenging Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City for the league?
"Villas-Boas has done great.
"He just stepped into the job right after Harry Redknapp, who did quite well for the club.
"He wasn't the obvious choice but I know him a little bit now.
"He's a great guy, a great personality, a great person and it is a learning process at this time.
"He's very passionate and very happy to be at Spurs and I'm sure he will do everything possible to bring success to the club.
"As for Newcastle . as soon as you think someone will be there for two, three, four years.
"It's unbelievable. This is Newcastle.
"If I was involved at Newcastle I would be looking at stability, building the club up from scratch. They need stability."
