+Reto's quick to adapt

Posted on 3 November 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).

Reto Ziegler says he's quickly adapted to the English style of football.

The left-sided Swiss youngster has grabbed his chance with injuries to Thimothee Atouba and Erik Edman to start the last two games against Bolton and Fulham.

Swiss Under-21 international Reto joined the club in August from Grasshoppers Zurich and only had to wait a couple of months for his Premiership debut at Everton.

He's now put in full shifts against Bolton in the Carling Cup and Fulham and looks likely to be involved again against Charlton on Saturday.

"For me, the style of football is not new now," said Reto. "We train all week, it's quicker, the games are quicker and I have adapted since my first game.

"I feel I've progressed to play quicker and you must think quicker and it's the football I like. I enjoy this football.

"I was delighted to get my chance against Bolton and Fulham although we lost at Fulham and that was very disappointing.

"It's a dream to play here in the Premier League and I want to progress and get better and better."
