Gylfi Sigurdsson started the game against Crystal Palace at the weekend amidst plenty of competition for places in the Spurs squad and the Icelandic international would have gone some way to securing a run in the team had he taken a golden opportunity in the second half.
Gylfi’s game time may be reduced this season but the player himself has welcomed the new arrivals and, while speaking to the Tottenham Journal, he urged the club to sign even more new faces.
“We’ve brought in a few good players,” Sigurdsson said. “Hopefully there’ll be one or two more to strengthen our squad because it’s a long season, we’ve got many competitions, and we need a lot of good players.”
Sig also admitted that it has taken a little longer for him to fit in at Spurs than he would have liked.
“Obviously it took me a while to settle in and get off the mark,” he told the Tottenham Journal.
“Did the fans see the best of me last season? Probably towards the end. I wasn’t happy with myself at the beginning until Christmas.
“Sometimes you just fit in straight away – that’s what happened at Swansea – but it’s taken a bit of a longer time that I wanted here at Tottenham and hopefully I can do well this season.”
By the end of this week, Gylfi Sigurdsson could face further competition from more new names – Willian included – but the Ice man doesn’t seem perturbed by the battle for places.
