Safe Hans back again

Posted on 19 January 2001  - 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).

Hans Segers cannot wait to be one of the boys again. <P class=MsoNormal>Our goalkeeping coach will be back in the Premiership spotlight after over a two-year absence when Southampton travel to the Lane on Saturday. <P class=MsoNormal>Hans, now 39, will be in the bench for the next two games with Ian Walker taking over from suspended Neil Sullivan. Our current &lsquo&#59;third&rsquo&#59; goalkeeper, Gavin Kelly, is still on loan at Kingstonian. <P class=MsoNormal>The flying Dutchman last played in the Premiership ironically against<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp&#59; </SPAN>the Saints at The Dell back in September 1998. <P class=MsoNormal>And he is looking forward to that changing room buzz again. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It&rsquo&#59;s a great feeling to really be part of the team,&rdquo&#59; he beamed. &ldquo&#59;Obviously I&rsquo&#59;ve been travelling with the lads for the away games over the last two years and on the bench for home games but to actually have the possibility of being involved is quite exciting. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I always work myself very hard just in case I&rsquo&#59;m ever needed and it&rsquo&#59;s going to happen this weekend. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I will have to do a bit more myself in training goalkeeping wise but I still enjoy it. I might be 39 but once I&rsquo&#59;m in the goal I&rsquo&#59;m back to 19 again. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I still get a few vibes and a few nerves as well. That&rsquo&#59;s no problem because it will always bring out the best in you.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal>Of course, Hans will hope he&rsquo&#59;s not required on Saturday and knows it is a vital game for us. &ldquo&#59;We&rsquo&#59;re in a position now where if we can put a run together we could soon be in the top six,&rdquo&#59; he added. &ldquo&#59;That&rsquo&#59;s where we want to be at the end of the season.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal><I><LISTEN href="" <A clicking by thoughts Hans? to>Listen to Hans' thoughts by clicking <A href="">here </A></I><P class=MsoNormal> <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
