Spurs and Argentinean legend Ossie Ardiles has spoke of his confidence about Tottenham’s chances in this forthcoming season.
“I think that we are going to do very well, and I’m very confident. Harry is confident. We are in Europe for the first time in a long time, and it’s going to be a very good season I would say.”
Embellishing on his views with regards to the club’s chances in the Champions League Ardiles said:
“I think we can go a long, long way. You have to be very positive all the time, and obviously we have to win the first two games now against the Young Boys of Switzerland and after that we take it from there. You never know to be perfectly honest. The Champions League has a lot of incredibly good teams, and it’s a hard competition to be playing in. I hope we go on as long as possible.”
Whilst positive about the team’s prospects, Ardiles did state he would like to see some transfer activity before the window closes:
“I think Harry is looking and looking and looking. Right now it is not very easy to buy a player unless you spend money like Manchester City. Harry is trying and I believe he is looking for someone who can improve the team as whoever is coming has to be better than what we have already got. It has to be someone very, very good.”
Ardiles was speaking about Tottenham during an interview about Sporting Memorabilia and his links with London-based Sporting Memorabilia Company SJ Dent & Co. Whilst Ardiles treasures his World Cup medal as his most prized piece of memorabilia, he stated he would love to own something from “someone he admired very much in sport – Muhammad Ali”.
