Tottenham’s summer signing Gylfi Sigurdsson has revealed that the clubs’ ambition was the main reason he chose to move to White Hart Lane over Liverpool in the transfer window, as reported by talkSPORT.
Sigurdsson had an offer to join his former manager Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool but elected to join Andre Villas-Boas and Spurs after seeing the plans for the squad, training ground and stadium.
“When you look at the players that are here, they are fantastic,” Sigurdsson told talkSPORT.
“It’s an environment where you can improve. There’s a new training ground and plans for a new stadium.
“The ambition of the club is very high and things going on inside the club are great. The club finished fourth last season and they are aiming higher this season. It’s a great club so it wasn’t a hard decision.”
“Every footballer wants to play in the Champions League, it’s the highest stage, and Tottenham were very unlucky last year that they didn’t get in it when Chelsea won the trophy.
“We’re in the Europa League now and the ambition this season is to try and get a champions league spot.
“The club wants to win trophies and the Europa league is a great trophy. The manager has won it before with Porto and the squad want to do well in it, so we want to win it.”
