Glenn on Ted farewell

Posted on 13 May 2003  - 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 was delighted with the send off that the fans afforded to departing skipper Teddy Sheringham.

The vast majority of a sell-out final day crowd stayed put after the final whistle to bid farewell to Teddy and the only dampener was that it came on the back of such a disappointing result.

"Rightly so," insisted Glenn. "Teddy has done a great job for the club in the two periods of time he's been here.

"It was great to see the send-off the fans gave him - it was just a shame how the circumstances panned out with the result.

"I said that to him in the dressing room when I wished him all the best. It was a sad situation for him.

"He's done very well for the club and we wish him all the very best for the future. Teddy gave everything like he always does and he is a very, very good professional."

The boss attempted to introduce Milenko Acimovic with seconds remaining to allow Teddy an individual ovation, but events in the final stages prevented that.

"I wanted to take him off with a minute to go to let him have an ovation, but there was a corner and a free-kick. You think what's better? - he might end up scoring a goal. That didn't even work out for us."
