Training 2 April 04

Posted on 12 July 2004  - 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).

Frank Arnesen sees our training camp in Sweden as the ideal 'getting to know you' exercise for both new players and the management team.

New arrivals Sean Davis and goalkeeper Marton Fulop flew out with the squad on Sunday and midfielder Pedro Mendes is scheduled to arrive at the club's training base just outside Gothenburg on Monday.

Meanwhile, on the management side, Frank is joined by fellow newcomers Head Coach Jacques Santini, first assistant Martin Jol and coach Dominique Cuperly.

Training started in earnest on the squad's arrival and three sessions are planned for Monday - kicking-off at 7am.

"First of all it's great for the new faces, particularly the staff, to have a full week with 24 hours a day together," said Frank after that first session on Sunday.

"There are a lot of possibilities to train, a beautiful training surface here and the weather here in Sweden is normally great - not to hot, not too cold. You can train hard.

"Pedro Mendes arrives tomorrow morning (Monday), Sean Davis is here and it is ideal for the new players to come in and settle down with the squad."

In addition to training, we have friendly matches against Falkensbergs FF on Tuesday, FC Copenhagen in Gothenburg on Thursday and FC Trollhatten on Saturday.

"Footballers like to play football, simple as that," added Frank. "We will use the games as extra training and look at the technical side of things. We will train hard and the games are an added bonus."
