Les' Mersey mission

Posted on 22 April 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).

Les Ferdinand hopes to bounce back at Anfield on Sunday.

Striker Les has been missing since trudging off despondently during our semi-final defeat against Arsenal with a hamstring strain.

But the 34-year-old insists ‘everything is fine’ and that he hopes to return to the starting line-up at Liverpool.

He will be welcomed back with open arms — not least after Sergei Rebrov became our latest injury victim last week.

“I’ve trained this week, everything is fine and I’m hoping to play at Liverpool,” he revealed. “We’ve only a few games to go and it would be nice to be involved.

“It will be a test for us. Liverpool are flying and we all know that they are after a top three finish and a place in the Champions League.

“Obviously we’ve plenty of injuries and a lot of youngsters in the side. We need a bit of experience in there and hopefully I will be able to provide it.”

Les had been impressed with those youngsters. “It just shows that the future of Tottenham Hotspur is very positive,” he said.

“They’ve gone in and played in pressure situations. Usually you will see a young player go into the side surrounded by experience but these lads have gone in together and done themselves proud.”
