Harry Redknapp has held talks with members of his Tottenham squad regarding their social lives after their late-night celebrations following the win over Portsmouth.
Spurs' Peter Crouch and Jonathan Woodgate were pictured dancing in the early hours in London's Movida club in the wake of last Saturday's victory at Fratton Park.
Redknapp is keen for his players to keep out of the spotlight and has discussed the incident ahead of this weekend's home meeting with Stoke.
He said: "It's very difficult to stop players going out on a Saturday night with their wives. There's always somebody out there with a camera.
"If they do go out they have to make sure they behave and keep as low a profile as they can.
"At the end of the day they've done nothing wrong. I've spoken to them and hopefully it won't happen again."
Meanwhile, Redknapp has reflected on his first year at White Hart Lane and hopes the club can hold onto a place in the top four of the Premier League.
The former Pompey boss, who was appointed in 2008 after Spurs' woeful opening to the last campaign, said: "A year goes too quick, but it's been an enjoyable year on the football front. I wouldn't have been here if they'd not had a bad start.
"Things have gone very well. We've played good football and got some good results, which is what I was paid to do.
"We had a great end of last season and we've carried it on. There's no reason why we can't continue, the confidence is there and there's all the ingredients to do well.
"We've got 19 points from nine games, if we can take 19 for the next nine I'll be very pleased.
"As an outsider I always looked at Tottenham as a club that should be up there. They've had great teams over the years with a great history. We haven't achieved anything yet but it looks like it is possible."
