Steffen's Diary

Posted on 9 March 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).

Ask me if we can beat Chelsea again on Sunday and my answer is simple - yes we can!

We can believe that now, especially after beating them for the first time in 12 years.

I think that was the key point for the players and supporters. If we have the same performance, the same attitude and fire, I am sure we can beat them again.

As far as my injury is concerned, things are moving forward, but slowly.

It takes time for the cruciate ligament to start working again and now is a crucial point in the rehabilitation.

The injury happened seven weeks ago and at around six to eight weeks you have to be very careful because the ligament starts to work again, the knee becomes stronger and it is important not to go too far ahead.

I am very happy with how it is progressing. I'm a little surprised because it's better than when I had the same injury six years ago, the movement, the feeling and I look forward to starting again in pre-season.

I must say, it's great to be here at the club, at the training ground and in and around the players.

I made a mistake six years ago to do a lot on my own, in my own way. That was wrong.

Now I enjoy talking to the players, especially after games, to being around the training ground. You are part of the club and that can help you to come back. The club is so helpful and behind me and I would like to say thank-you because that is a great feeling.
