Tottenham Hotspur – 2 times
Tottenham Hotspur has twice scored his name on the top of the tournament’s glory. That glory has retreated into the past, now the Rooster does not leave much of a mark on the European club playground. Tottenham’s two thrones took place in 1972 and 1984. They also reached the final in 1974 but lost.
