DERBY DAYS DELIGHT DIDIER

Didier Zokora doesn't travel too far afield for his main highlights of last season.

Didier Zokora doesn't travel too far afield for his main highlights of last season.

The midfielder drafted in from St Etienne in France selected the big London derbies against Arsenal and Chelsea as the top moments of his first campaign in England.

Although finally beating the Blues in league action naturally made it one to remember, Didier was particularly taken by the atmosphere in the arenas in these capital affairs both home and away – not least when he first stepped out against Arsenal – very different from what he was used to in Le Championnat.

“For me, the best moments were the derbies, they were magnificent.,” he reflected.

“In France, it is very different. It is still a big rivalry, but the teams are further apart. Here, Tottenham and Arsenal are so close, you can feel it when you play.

“Of course, my first derby against Arsenal was disappointing because we lost but I’ll never forget the feeling when we played them at White Hart Lane. The atmosphere was amazing.”

A favourite with the fans within months of his arrival, the likable Ivory Coast international also admitted he would never forget the win against Chelsea on November 5 – when he conducted a chorus of ‘Do, Do, Do, Didier Zokora…’ to delirious fans after the final whistle.

“It was great to beat Chelsea, I knew it meant so much,” he added. “I was told all about how long it was since we beat them, so that was a fantastic day for everyone.”

Why should the excitement stop just because the season is over? Details of Poker tournaments that follow every Tottenham Hotspur game are available by CLICKING HERE...
