Freund guns for Arsenal

Posted on 30 March 2001  - 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).

Steffen Freund believes the Tottenham-Arsenal derby is one of the biggest in world football. <P class=MsoNormal>The German midfielder relishes these North London clashes and will have a key role to play at Highbury on Saturday. <P class=MsoNormal>Steffen said: &ldquo&#59;I always look forward to the London derbies. I had the same situation with my last club Borussia Dortmund against Schalke 04, the biggest derby in Germany, and now I have the same thing at Tottenham. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;My feeling is that this game is bigger than the derby in Germany but Dortmund and Schalke 04 have huge stadiums and there was always 70,000 fans in there. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;But if Arsenal or Tottenham had a bigger stadium then it would be even bigger because then 100,000 fans would come. It has to be one of the biggest derbies in the world.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal>Steffen will look to ruffle a few feathers in the central midfield battleground where he is likely to come up against Patrick Vieira and Ray Parlour. <P class=MsoNormal>He added: &ldquo&#59;In the middle of the park there is a lot of power, a lot of one-on-one situations and you have to fight for every ball. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We have to believe we can beat Arsenal. We know how important this game is for everyone and we will give everything." <P>We are 4/1 to win the game with Freund 40/1 to open the scoring - <A href="" target=_new DESIGNTIMEURL="">click here for details. </A><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
