Where there's a Will...

Posted on 22 March 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).

Willem Korsten is desperate to play more of a part in our crucial run in to the season &mdash&#59; not least in the FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal.<P class=MsoNormal>The flying Dutchman has been grounded on the bench 14 times this season in addition to his three Premiership starts and one in the Worthington Cup.<P class=MsoNormal>Having been converted from wide man to front man this season, he may just have to settle for more bench duty as Sergei Rebrov, Les Ferdinand and Steffen Iversen are all fighting fit.<P class=MsoNormal>To make more of a long-term impact though Willem knows he will first have to impress a new manager.<P class=MsoNormal>Speaking after a frustrating night in front of goal in the reserves&rsquo&#59; goalless draw against Derby County at the Lane, Willem commented: &ldquo&#59;No-one knows what manager is coming in or if he will bring in new players. All I can do is wait and see who comes in, try to do well and get a chance.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Everyone wants to play and of course I want a taste of the first team. Hopefully I&rsquo&#59;ll get that in the near future.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;There are still a couple of months left this season and we play Arsenal twice in the space of a week. The FA Cup is so important.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I&rsquo&#59;ve been on the bench regularly but the bench isn&rsquo&#59;t the same as playing. I&rsquo&#59;m very happy at Tottenham and I just want to play - that is most important to me.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>As for the reserves&rsquo&#59; display, Willem added: &ldquo&#59;It was a tough game, very competitive and we&rsquo&#59;re glad with a point. It was that type of game.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We needed to recover from last week at Southampton and with the youngsters involved I thought we did well. Last week was a disaster and everyone was focussed on getting it right.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
