Glenn fully focused

Posted on 24 November 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).

Glenn Hoddle has no doubts that Terry Venables will turn Leeds United's fortunes around - but insists charity will not begin at our home on Sunday.

Many have built up the game as a massive one for the former Spurs boss, who is under pressure at Elland Road having lost seven times already in the Premiership.

But Glenn countered: "It's a huge game for us as well.

"I'm not denying the fact that we're very focused this week. I'm not too concerned with what's happened at Leeds, all I'm concerned about it what team they will play and how we'll go about playing against them."

Yet Glenn has no doubts his fellow ex-England boss will get United back on track given time.

Glenn added: "I've got utmost respect for Terry Venables and I'm sure he'll do a good job in the long term for Leeds. I really see that.

"I worked with him as a player at Under-21 level and I've always had that respect for him and I'm sure he will get it right.

"It will be nice for Terry to come back to the Lane but there won't be any charity given. He knows that and both teams will go out all guns blazing.

"Leeds have got a lot of quality and an excellent coach in Brian Kidd as well to get over the run. We just have to make sure it doesn't start on Sunday."
