Didier Zokora says he loves stepping out in front of our supporters at White Hart Lane.

The fans have certainly taken Didier to their hearts whith their own song for the midfielder, a version of the Black Lace party classic 'Do The Conga' - just in case you didn't know, instead of 'do, do, do, come on and do the conga', it's 'do, do, do, Didier Zokora' - much to his delight!

"My song is fantastic!" beamed the popular Ivory Coast international at Spurs Lodge. "The fans appreciate me and I want to play well in every game for them. It means a lot.

"We are confident in front of our fans and I always want to do well for them.

"When we win, I go to the fans at the end of the game - I love the fans and I love this team."

Didier knows he's in for a test if selected for our next outing at the Lane - Sunday's clash against Newcastle United in the Barclays Premiership, kicking-off at 4pm.

We met at St James' Park just three weeks ago when, having had our plans disrupted by a late injury to Jermain Defoe, Newcastle tore into us early on, scoring twice in the opening six minutes. We recovered for 2-1 but Scott Parker's goal to make it 3-1 before the break proved crucial and the scoreline stayed that way.

Didier was impressed with that Newcastle midfield. "Parker and Butt are very strong, very aggressive and that's an important duel in midfield," he added.

"Parker is captain and a very good player, he wins the ball, he's strong, a leader. Dyer is very quick, always looking for the space and Martins, the striker, is also quick. They are a threat.

"We're playing well, we're confident at home and this is another important game for us."
