Gylfi Sigurdsson thinks Tottenham have greater chance of success than Liverpool
Friday 13 July 2012
Midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson feels he has a better chance of success at Tottenham than he would have done at Liverpool.
Sigurdsson snubbed the Reds and their new manager Brendan Rodgers, under whom he played while on loan at Swansea last season, to join Spurs and their new boss Andre Villas-Boas from Hoffenheim.
The 22-year-old said in The Sun: "Everything about Tottenham just felt right for me. Liverpool are also a fantastic club but if you look at where Tottenham have finished in the last few years, they finished above Liverpool.
"With a new manager, a new training ground and plans for a new stadium, I believe there are exciting times are ahead."
