Freund: I'll be back
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).
Steffen Freund has vowed to return from the second serious knee injury of his career.
Scans have revealed that our German midfielder damaged the cruciate ligament in his right knee in Wednesday's Worthington Cup semi-final at Chelsea.
The 31-year-old former German international requires surgery and faces a lengthy lay-off.
Steffen suffered exactly the same injury in his left knee ironically against England in the Euro 96 semi-final at Wembley Stadium.
But he was back in time to play a part in Borussia Dortmund's Champions' League triumph the following season and insists he will be back again from this latest setback.
Speaking today, Steffen declared: "I know what is coming, I know what I have to do and that is why I know I will be back.
"It is very disappointing because I believe there are good times ahead for Tottenham. We are playing well and confidence is high.
"What more can I say? I am quite depressed now and it is very diffcult to talk about it suffice to say that I've faced it before and I am not worried about facing it again."
