Gus joins Lane revolution

Posted on 10 June 2001  - 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).

Gustavo Poyet has joined Glenn Hoddle's revolution. The Uruguayan international has signed a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee after turning down Liverpool and a host of European clubs to be part of the new era at the Lane.

The 33-year-old who scored 36 goals in 105 Premiership appearances for Chelsea (50 goals in 145 games in all competitions) was unveiled at a press conference on Sunday.

And he can barely wait for this new chapter in his career to start. "It was an important decision for me and I'm very excited," he said.

"I'm like a 21-year-old boy who has just signed a contract for a big club. I need a holiday but I'm looking forward to July when I can start training with my new team-mates."

Boss Glenn insisted he'd brought in the goalscoring midfielder, amongst other reasons, because 'he was a winner'.

Gus added: "I'm just looking forward to starting training. When you do that you can see the quality of the team, the quantity of the team, which is also important, then I will have more things to say about winning. For now just we'll try to win the first game and then go forward.

"It is a young team but we are looking to bring in more experience. After that you start to play as a group, start playing to a system, everyone will want to see us playing nice football on the floor. That style of football will be magnificent for me."
