Goran: Pressure on United

Posted on 21 September 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 suggests that the pressure is on Manchester United to secure the points in this afternoon's encounter at Old Trafford.

United have lost their last two Premiership games against Bolton and Leeds, but did score five in the Champions League against Maccabi Haifa. They are likely to be champing at the bit to make up for a bit of lost ground in the table.

"We don't have anything to lose, to be honest," pondered Goran. "We'll go there with strong heads, clever heads, concentrate, try to score and do our best.

"We have to play our football and try to not let them score, which will be hard. We've got our good things that we want to improve in every game and we want to get a good score there.

"They are a great team who have got some of the best players in the world. Now they have Rio Ferdinand, who is a great defender, so it will be hard for us.

"We also have very good players, talented players who have shown they can play against anybody."

So do Spurs set out, first and foremost, to stop United scoring?

"It is good to be cautious against this team, of course, but you also have to be positive. If you think you can play at this level and want to get to the top and play Champions League or UEFA Cup, you have to be positive in these games.

"That's the only way. If you go there only to defend or are afraid of them - then you are going to lose."
