Goran gunning for Arsenal

Posted on 15 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).

Goran Bunjevcevic has yet to feature in a North London derby - but he knows what it's all about.

The stylish Yugoslav defender missed both clashes in his first season at the club due to injury.

But he soon learned about the fixture from the sidelines.

"I know all about the rivalry," said Goran. "I was injured at the time but I was at White Hart Lane for the game last season, so I know everything about it.

"That was an incredible game for me to see. I knew straight away then how much this rivalry means to this club and the supporters and every player will give everything to try and defeat Arsenal on Saturday."

Of course, Goran is no stranger to derby day. His previous club Red Star Belgrade - where he lined-up alongside our summer recruit Milenko Acimovic - take on Partisan Belgrade in one of Europe's more explosive encounters.

Goran explained: "Every derby in every country is different.

The style of derby in my country is very bad. There is a lot of fighting and violence in the crowd.

"If you win against Partisan you can go all around the town and be the boss, if you lose, it is not so good.

"It is much different to this game but in terms of sport, it is the same rivalry."
