WTPS: George defends Taricco

Posted on 24 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).

Ipswich Town boss George Burley speaks out in defence of our much-maligned Argentinian full-back Mauricio Taricco in the Sunday Mirror.

Tano's former boss Burley says: "He's a lovely lad. You couldn't meet a nicer bloke. He is a first-class professional and an exceptional player."

Tano is currently serving a five-match total ban after red cards against Manchester United and Chelsea.

Not too many rumours in Sunday's papers although the People link us with Peruvian striker Gianfranco Labarthe, just 17, and suggest Bayern Munich are also interested.

Meanwhile, the Mirror suggest Millwall are looking to take Matt Etherington on loan until the end of the season.

The rest of the papers concentrate on previewing our Premiership clash at Fulham.
