The 2002–03 season was Tottenham Hotspur's 11th season in the Premier League and 25th successive season in the top division of the English football league system.

Season summary[edit]

The 2002-03 campaign, manager Glenn Hoddle's second full season in charge of the team, was considered a major disappointment as the club finished in 10th place in the league table and exited both domestic cup competitions in the early rounds. Striker Robbie Keane, signed from Leeds United for £7,000,000 before the start of the season, was the team's top scorer in the Premier League with 13 goals, while club legend Teddy Sheringham, his final season with the club, scored a creditable 13 goals in all competitions.
