Glenn confirms Ziege interest

Posted on 11 June 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).

Glenn Hoddle has admitted he’s on the trail of Liverpool defender Christian Ziege.

Ziege appears out of favour with boss Gerard Houllier with England international Jamie Carragher the first-choice left-back and young Frenchman Gregory Vignal pushing through the ranks.

Despite that, Ziege is still a regular with Germany, has won 57 caps and played in their recent World Cup qualifying matches against Finland and Albania.

Ziege has had spells with Bayern Munich and AC Milan earlier in his career before arriving in England with Middlesbrough.

Glenn revealed: “I would envisage another two players coming in.

“We have made a bid for Christian but he is away on holiday so it is difficult to say too much about that.

“We have spoken to Liverpool and whether we can take it on further remains to be seen in the coming weeks.”
