Hans on Frank

Posted on 20 May 2004  - 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).

Hans Segers says you cannot argue with the track record of our new Sporting Director Frank Arnesen.

The club announced Frank's appointment yesterday as we move towards a new continental style of management.

Our Dutch goalkeeping coach Hans started his career at PSV and remains regular visitor to the Eindhoven club - he often returned to train during English football's summer break.

"I don't actually know Frank personally that well but I remember when I started as a youngster at PSV Eindhoven he was at Ajax," recalled Hans.

"As a player he was a running machine. He could run all day long and had an unbelievable eye for goal.

"He came to PSV first as a player, then a coach and assistant to Sir Bobby Robson and then Technical Director.

"His track record is unbelievable when you look at the players he brought in from both at home and abroad - Ronaldo, Romario, Van Nistelrooy, they all came from Frank Arnesen.

"He is not very well known in England but in Europe he is very highly regarded. As I said, you can't argue with his track record."
