No time to look back

Posted on 16 March 2005  - 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).

Fredi Kanoute says the lads have had no time to feel sorry for themselves after the FA Cup disappointment at Newcastle.


It's been well documented now how unlucky we were in the quarter-final at St James' Park but striker Fredi insists attentions turned immediately to Charlton when the lads arrived back at Spurs Lodge.


"Everyone was down after Sunday but we didn't have the time to lay back and feel sorry for ourselves," stressed Fredi.


"We had to focus again straight away for Charlton on Wednesday and then Manchester City on Saturday.


"That's good because we had to quickly start from zero again, even if we were disappointed. We want to put things right quickly and that means we have to focus on the league, there are no other options."


Meanwhile, Fredi will come up against a familiar face from both French, English and African Nations football at Charlton tonight.


Addicks' Moroccan international defender Talal El Karkouri has made quite a name for himself with five goals this season.


"Yes, I know him a little," said Fredi. "He was at Paris St Germain when I was at Lyon, he was at Sunderland as well and I played against him when I was at West Ham.


"He's a good player, quick, strong and I think this is the kind of team that is very hard to beat, especially away. It will be a battle."
