Clem: Great to be back!

Posted on 3 May 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).

Stephen Clemence could not hide his delight after coming through his first senior start since late August against Liverpool on Saturday.

Clem produced his usual all-action and combative type performance in the centre of our midfield and it was like he'd never been away.

"It's great to be back," he beamed. "It's been a long time out, eight months, so to come back in a big game was probably a little bit easier actually.

"Liverpool is always a big game and we got the result we needed."

The 24-year-old was forewarned of his return to the side and praised him team-mates for steering him through when tiredness began to set in.

"I knew a couple of days ago so I had a bit of time to prepare for it.

"I was delighted. The team have done brilliant and helped me through the first game because it's always a bit testing on the fitness. There was times when I was breathing quite heavy.

"I was well pleased to come through it and I'm delighted with the result.

"The lads worked hard though and defended as a team. We had Steffen Iversen back at the end putting in tackles and it's a great result for us."
