Rohan's reward

Posted on 21 December 2003  - 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).

Rohan Ricketts received a major boost earlier this week with the award of an extended contract to remain at the club and the midfielder took a little time out to reflect on what has been a memorable season so far for him.

Having joined in the summer of 2002, Rohan didn't feature for the first team in his first season as a Spurs player, but burst onto the scene on the opening day of this campaign when he was awarded his debut against Birmingham City at St Andrews.

He won many a plaudit for his display and remained in the starting line-up for the first six games and has featured regularly since then - much to his naturally exuberant delight.

"I am enjoying it, it is all new to me and I take every game as one step at a time," said Rohan. "I just want to keep playing and try to improve myself as a player - and improve the team with what I can bring to it."

Asked to nominate his favourite game so far, Rohan pointed to the disciplined point-winning performance against Liverpool in match three of the season.

"Anfield was a good night, I liked that game. I played well, but it wasn't all flair as people might expect of me - it was more intelligent and competent.

"There was the Coventry one where I only came on for a while, but I liked that game because of the goal," he added, before being reminded that his two goals have been in games he hasn't started.

"Yeah - Supersub! But I understand the tactics and the need for a different team sometimes. I don't mind, I just want to be in the squad all the time."
