Posted on 17 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).

Goran Bunjevcevic is desperate to play again after his injury-wrecked first season in English football.

After such a promising start, Goran spent most of the season on the sidelines following a fractured cheekbone, thigh and knee trouble.

Nevertheless, the Yugoslav international takes a positive stance.

He said: "Last season was bad for me because of the injuries but it was also good because I was able to see the situation in England, the style of football and I learned a lot about the Premiership, about my team, my team-mates.

"I haven't played for eight months and I am determined to play again. I feel like I'm starting again and that's a very good feeling.

"I trained with the boys in La Manga, everything was fine and now we start pre-season, everything is perfect. Our target is Europe, I think we have a great team if we can stay fit.

"I am ready to play. That is very good. I can move progessively into the games and be ready for the start of the season."

Goran spent plenty of his summer break at Spurs Lodge - alongside Stephen Carr.

He revealed: "Stephen Carr and I trained all summer here. It was a hard time for us. I now feel I'm determined to show why I came here."
