Bunje starting over

Posted on 25 July 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Glenn says that we are starting again with Goran Bunjevcevic and he feels the fans missed out because of his injury woes last season.

After impressing throughout last pre-season and in the early stages of the campaign, Goran was struck down with a fractured cheekbone followed by tendonitis in his knees that kept him out for the rest of the season.

The Yugoslav is now back on the pre-season trail again and the centre-half with superb attacking instincts hit the pass that led to Lee Barnard's goal against Colchester on Tuesday.

"He's a great footballer," said Glenn. "The ball it hit for the third goal just split the defence and that's the ability he's got.

"It's a shame Spurs fans didn't see it last year. Goran's played for Red Star for nearly 10 years and been an established player. The Premier Leagiue is a little different and he was always going to need 10, 12 matches to adjust and play like that.

"We're starting again with Goran but I know the lad has such ability, such a range of passing. He's been out nearly a year and he's feeling his way back."

The re-entry of Goran to the ranks swell Glenn's options in the defensive area and he is well blessed in midfield following the recruitment of Jamie Redknapp, Milenko Acimovic, Rohan Ricketts and Jonathan Blondel. Glenn is not about to complain about being spoilt for choice.

"I hope it continues. I hope we are spoilt at the back, in midfield and up front as well. That's what it's about.

"If we are going to catch some of those teams up we've got to have the option where we've got strength in depth and if everyone is fit, we'll have a hell of a squad."
