Goran's added spur

Posted on 1 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 a special motivation for doing well against Chelsea at the Lane - it was the corresponding fixture last season that de-railed his career in English football for almost a year.

In an accidental first half clash with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, the Yugoslav international sustained a fractured jaw that saw him out of the first team reckoning for six weeks.

He returned to the fold in the reserves wearing a protective mask and featured as a first team substitute in the November before suffering from tendonitis in the knees that ruled him out for the rest of the campaign.

It was a wretched run of injury luck for the Spurs newcomer and he wants to put it right against the team where it all started.

"I think it is the game of the year for me," smiled Goran at Spurs Lodge. "If you remember, against Chelsea, I had the clash of heads that led to me practically being out of the Premiership for almost a year.

"I have a great motivation to be in the team and play against Chelsea - especially because of the results that have happened in the league over the last 10 or 15 years.

"For me, I cannot wait for Sunday and cannot wait for the game to start. I think it is a great, great game for us.

"If we can win against Chelsea, and I'm sure we'll give our best to beat them, I think we'll be on the right track to Europe next year."
