Steffen hits century

Posted on 31 October 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).

Steffen Freund has completed his ton up at Spurs - and is convinced that the togetherness at the club will take us up and up.

Saturday's 2-1 victory against Middlesbrough was the midfield marauder's 100th game since joining us from Borussia Dortmund in January 1999.

It is a totally different looking Spurs team from when he made his debut at Sheffield Wednesday almost three years ago - new manager, new players, new system and new belief.

Steffen declared: "I've been here over two and a half years and I am very proud that I came back from my bad injury in 1996 to play 100 games in English football. I'm also proud to play for Tottenham.

"I can remember my debut at Hillsborough. I came in from Germany late in that week and just about went straight into the team on the Saturday!

"I've enjoyed my time in the Premier League. It is a style of football I like to play and I love the passion of games and the crowd. This is my football.

"We are improving and this way is the right way. We stick together at the club from everyone one at White Hart Lane to the players and that is the right way. That lets everyone know how important they are for the success of the club."
