Glad to be back

Posted on 19 April 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).

Mauricio Taricco is just glad to be back after serving his five-match suspension.

'Tano' is available for Saturday's Premiership encounter at Bolton after two controversial sending offs left him on the sidelines starting from the trip to Fulham last month.

He admitted: "The five games went very slowly for me and it's nice to see the back of them. I'm just looking forward to playing football again.

"First of all it's up to the manager if I can get a place in the team.

"The team has been playing well and the players who have played in the position I play have done well, so I might have to wait for my chance, but that's competition in football and that's what it's all about.

"I'm fit, I'm well, I've trained every day and I've had a game for the reserves to try and get my match fitness back."

Tano kept a dignified silence after his red cards and wants it to stay that way.

"I have no comments about the sendings off," he said. "I'll just let people say what they want to say.

"I was disappointed getting sent off but these things happen. I have to get on with it and I will."
