Glenn: Players have chance to impress

Posted on 14 April 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 underlined why our final six Premiership games are so vital for the players — they have the chance to impress him.

Four of those fixtures can be deemed as ‘glamour’ clashes starting with Saturday’s trip to Sunderland followed by Chelsea on Tuesday, Liverpool next Sunday and Manchester United on the final day of the season.

Glenn, determined to push for every point in a late bid for Europe, insisted: “These are massive games for the players in the sense that I’m their new manager and they have a chance.

“What has gone on in the past is of no concern to me — it’s all about what goes on in the future.

“I’m looking for a different style of football maybe than what he been played here in the last few years and every opportunity has the opportunity to hit me in the eye.”

Glenn knows what is in store at the hostile Stadium of Light — he has already forced a 2-2 draw there with Southampton this season.

He added: “We were happy with the win against Bradford and now we have to go to Sunderland, which is a very intimidating place to play.

“They are passionate about their football and that is to be respected. They are the stadiums and atmospheres you want to play in.

“I’ve been there and got a 2-2 draw with Southampton and we can go and get a result there, that’s for sure.”
