Sigurdsson eyes Tottenham title challenge

Just a day after Andre Villas-Boas challenged his new side to break the barrier and win the Premier League this season, his first signing Gylfi Sigurdsson has echoed those words adding his support to Tottenham’s title campaign.

Reported in the Daily Mail, the Icelandic midfielder has urged his teammates to challenge at the top of the league and bring silverware back to White Hart Lane. He said:

“Here at Spurs, it’s a big club and we aim to win titles and silverware. I think the most important thing is that we get off to a good start in the Premier League, get a good momentum and then we can take that into the Europa League and then the FA Cup. We want to play for silverware in every competition we are in.”

The 22-year-old was talking to Tottenham’s official website and has spoken of his reasons for signing the club after much deliberation amid offers from Liverpool and Swansea, who he spent the back half of last season on loan with.

He said: “I’m delighted to be here. It’s a massive club with fantastic players. This club is always improving. There is massive ambition from the board and the players are really ambitious as well. We’re all looking forward for the new season to begin.”

Sigurdsson signed from German side Hoffenheim for £8 million after rejecting a move to Swansea, which looked to be completed before Brendan Rodgers quit his post in South Wales and headed to Liverpool.

Villas-Boas has spoken of his delight at getting the midfielder who proved last season that he has what it takes to play in the English top flight, making 18 league appearances and scoring 7 times to help Swansea stay up.
