Phone off the hook!

Posted on 3 September 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).

Glenn admits there is a slight relief now that transfer speculation should cease for a while - his over used mobile phone will be glad of a break!

The transfer deadline passed on Saturday afternoon and Robbie Keane was paraded in front of an appreciative White Hart Lane crowd. Glenn says he can see good and bad in the new system.

"I think most chairmen and managers will tell you that there's good and bad," said the boss. "The bad is dealing with the deadline and working like we've had to work.

"The good thing is that it might stop the constant speculation and my phone number might not be dialled as much as it has been - it'll now be off for six months and you won't get through to me!"

The club has been linked with numerous players over the past weeks and, while delighted to have secured Keane, Glenn admits to being a little frustrated at missing out on another of his targets.

"We were certainly linked with all sorts of players. It goes without saying that we were very interested in Morientes, there were things behind the scenes that meant he did not end up here.

"I think it is credit to Daniel and the work that's been put in, we're delighted to have Robbie but our idea was to bring two in - that shows the ambition of the club.

"It's encouraging that we managed to get the person in that we wanted, but a tad frustrating that we didn't bring two in.

"The idea was to bring two in and I think Morientes would have been here if it wasn't for the cycle of things happening behind the scenes at Madrid. It's as simple as that. The truth is he wanted to come to us.

"To be fair to Daniel and the board, that was out of our hands.

"We've worked tirelessly to get a couple of strikers in and we're delighted that Robbie has finally arrived."
