Mido raring to go
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).
Mido is looking forward to the new season with great anticipation after his fine contribution to our Peace Cup win in South Korea.
The striker, voted second most valuable player of the tournament behind Robbie Keane, scored two goals in our Peace Cup encounters - against Boca Juniors and Real Sociedad - before providing the crosses for Robbie's two-goal show against Lyon in the final in Seoul on Sunday.
Mido feels the squad have benefited from our time in South Korea and suspects dividends will be reaped once the season begins on August 13.
"I am very happy we could win the tournament and it is very good for the confidence of the team before the start of the season," he reasoned. "We have had a very good time here and I think we can carry on and do better."
Mido spent his time off this summer concentrating on his fitness and conditioning in order to hit the ground running this time around.
"I feel much better than last season, I knew before I signed for Spurs that the first five months would be difficult for me because I didn't have a good preparation at the start of the season and didn't play a lot for Roma.
"I only took a short vacation in this close season - only six or seven days. I started working to get in shape for the preparation and I hope I can do much better in the coming season than the last.
"It is always much better, if you are in better shape you can do much more and be more of a help to your team."
