The Final Countdown - Win all that matters

Posted on 22 February 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).

Glenn Hoddle insists winning is all that matters in Sunday's Worthington Cup Final.

The boss confessed it will be a special feeling to lead the club he loves out of the tunnel for the big one at the Millennium Stadium.

But he was adamant that although the pre-match build-up was 'nice' he and the lads were 'only there for one thing'.

He has, of course, already led Chelsea out in the FA Cup Final at Wembley and taken England to the World Cup Finals.

"This is a bit different though, particularly for me being associated with the club for so long and being a supporter of the club," said Glenn at Thursday's press conference at the Lane.

"It will be a significant feeling I haven't had before in the jobs I've had.

"I'm looking forward to it but I'll only really be looking forward to walking back down the tunnel with the trophy, rather than anything else.

"Beforehand is nice but you are only there for one thing and that is to win the cup."

Glenn told the gathered press that his long-term aim was to assemble a side capable of challenging for the title.

But this season's aims were the two cups and on that front, it's a case of so far, so good.

He added: "At the start of the season every club has different agendas, different, realistic targets and our target for silverware was not the Premiership at this moment in time but the two cups available.

"We've steered our way into the final of one and we've one step left to take and we're in the quarter-finals of the other.

"So at this moment in time we're on course, nothing more, nothing less."
