Tottenham ace pleased with transfer snub
Sigurdsson rejected the chance of linking up with Brendan Rodgers once again after their successful partnership at Swansea last season and instead became Andre Villas-Boas’ first signing at White Hart Lane.
The Icelandic star has become a key player for Spurs over the past month or so, filling in on the left to allow star man Gareth Bale to move inside and win games in the way he has been.
Crucial goals against West Ham and Inter Milan seem to have won the Tottenham fans over for Sigurdsson who failed to hit the ground running at the start of the season.
The 23-year-old is likely to start against Liverpool on Sunday and he has reiterated that he made the right choice joining Spurs as they look on course for the top four and maybe even some Europa League glory.
“It was hard to turn down Liverpool because I know Brendan,” Sigurdsson told talkSPORT.
“It was more about that than any of the history Liverpool have.
“When Tottenham came in, I had seen how they were last year and in the previous two years.
“They finished fourth last year and were unlucky not to get Champions League football, and you could see tonight that this is a great club with fantastic players.
“I’m really pleased I made that choice. There are so many good players here and hopefully we can be in the Champions League next season.”
