Clem on Jamie

Posted on 1 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 is a great admirer of our new signing and fellow middle-man Jamie Redknapp.

Clem says the former Liverpool man is a player he looked up to as a youngster when Jamie and John Barnes were dictating play in the heart of the Anfield midfield.

"When I was in the youth team here Jamie was playing in the first team at Liverpool," recalled Clem.

"Obviously I think he's a great passer, I remember him and John Barnes in the Liverpool team and they were great."

Clem himself is a player who likes to get the ball down and spray passes about, but he shys away from comparisons.

"I'm not going to compare myself to him because I think he's a fantastic player. I had a game with him last Wednesday on the training ground and some of his passes were absolutely superb."
