When Gylfi Sigurdsson left Hoffenheim on a permanent basis in 2012, it was felt by some that he would join up with Brendan Rodgers who had guided him through a loan spell at Swansea. Liverpool may have seemed a likely destination and although the Merseyside club seem destined for a top four finish this season, the Icelandic International says he has no regrets about turning them down.
“At the time I was really happy to come to Tottenham, and I still am,” Sigurdsson said. “I’m really enjoying it. It’s a fantastic club and in the last couple of seasons we’ve shown the ambition to become better.
“Hopefully in the next couple of years, it will be really good. Because they didn’t qualify for Europe, Liverpool are playing one game a week and it’s benefited them quite a bit, because they’re fresh and ready to go in every game.”
It’s been an injury hit season for the 24 year old but he showed his potential value to the side with Sunday’s late winner against Southampton – one of a selection of vital goals he has scored for us. Some say he does little other than find the net but that’s not a bad quality to have so should Gylfi Sigurdsson start more games for Spurs or is the midfielder better used as an impact sub?
