Ricketts response

Posted on 30 August 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).

Bolton manager Sam Allardyce has again criticised Spurs following discussions about his striker Michael Ricketts and also claimed that we publicly announced our interest.

The facts remain that, whilst he is a player we rate, it was the agents who approached us and not the other way around; No offer was ever made — a position that can be confirmed by the Chairmen of both clubs — and we did not make our interest public.

This transfer window has seen unprecedented speculation and manipulation from all parties involved. Your Club has played no part in it.
