Graeme Souness believes there could be a player revolt at Tottenham Hotspur next summer if the club fail to make another serious title bid this season.
Spurs have finished third and second in the last two years, but there are fears that their temporary move to Wembley - where they won just one of five games last term - could stunt their progress.
A lack of signings is also a concern for Tottenham, who strengthened rivals Manchester City last month by selling them Kyle Walker for £54million.

Walker is now earning £130,000 per week at City, twice as much as fellow full back Danny Rose is on at Spurs.
Rose recently hinted in a newspaper interview that Tottenham's tight pay structure could eventually force him to leave the club.
And former Spurs midfielder Souness fears Rose may not be the only player who feels this way.
