Goran Bunjevcevic recently bade farewell to life at Spurs Lodge and had no hesitation in predicting a bright future for the Club.

The Serb, signed by Glenn Hoddle in the summer of 2001, completed a five year stint during which time he made 58 first team appearances in our colours. He has seen plenty of arrivals and departures during that time and is well positioned to assess the direction in which the current group of players is heading.

"It has been five very happy years and I will miss the lads and the club," said the 33-year-old. "I am very proud the club is finally in the European places.

"It is always hard when something comes to an end, but I have enjoyed it.

"It has gone very quickly and the club has grown during the time I have been here. I started with Hoddle then Pleat, Santini and now Martin Jol. Everything is going the right way now and I am sure the lads will succeed in their Champions League search next season.

"The really good thing about this group is they have a great spine, an English one with Robinson, King, Dawson, Carrick, Jenas and Defoe. Then there is Keane - even though he is Irish.

"The good spine is there, always you will have players coming and going, but these players will be here and the future is good."

Goran went on to reveal his plans for the immediate future after a season in which he played a big part in our reserve side winning the Barclays Premiership Reserve League South by a considerable margin.

"Rest! Just rest, I don't think I am going to play anymore, but you never know as it is a tricky decision.

"I have enjoyed my football over the years but I think I am going to rest a little bit now. Everybody says I should play in the first division or the Championship, but I don't know and at the moment I am not going to play anymore."
