Our Romanian international defender is looking forward to Sunday’s test against Manchester United at White Hart Lane – and he says he’d love nothing more than to scalp the Premier League champions in front of our passionate fans.
“I am excited to be playing Manchester United,” he said. “We need to make sure we play a good game and play a nice type of football for our supporters to be proud of.
“United are the champions of the Premier League so we need to perform well and look to play to our strengths.
“If we play to our best we can win against all of the teams we play.”
Vlad was born into a sports-orientated family in Bacau and, while his passion for the beautiful game runs as far back as he can remember, he admitted he’s also particularly fond of another sport.
