Glenn's positives

Posted on 8 July 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 takes plenty of positives when reflecting on his playing staff last season.

The boss was particularly delighted with the progress of youngsters Ledley King, Simon Davies and Anthony Gardner while his more experienced signings Gus Poyet and Teddy Sheringham delivered the goods expected.

"There are a lot of positives," said Glenn. "There could be four, five players who could warrant winning that Player of the Year. It would be a close call and that says a lot about a good squad.

"Christian Ziege is someone I feel there is a lot more to come from and Ledley, Simon, the youngsters have done marvellously well.

"Steffen Freund was having the best season he's had at Tottenham and Darren has come back and played the best he's played since he joined from Portsmouth.

"We scored goals from a lot of different places, different positions, different players. That goes with all the performances as well.

"Ledley has been very consistent for a young boy before he got injured and Gus Poyet has scored 14 and for a midfielder to score that amount of goals is an excellent return."
