Crouch confidence inspires Spurs

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur talisman Peter Crouch believes Spurs can go all the way in this season’s Champions League.

The England international’s confidence stems from the belief that Harry Redknapp’s heroes are even better than the Liverpool side that reached the 2007 final.

"Individually we have a better team here than Liverpool’s.

"When we reached the final then, we were extremely well organised and knew our jobs inside out. A lot of the time we had to grind out results.

"Tottenham have got better individuals and a better attacking flair going forward."


Crouch was part of the team that narrowly lost out 2-1 in Athens, ironically to Spurs’ latest last-16 victims AC Milan.

But the 6ft 7in striker says the North London club can go one step further and bring home the trophy in what has already been a very impressive debut season in the Champions League.

"If you are going to get to the final, you have to be resilient, defend well and get results," says Crouch.

"Wembley is just up the road. There is not far to go now and we are starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel."

Having taken Europe by storm with some thrilling attacking displays, Spurs proved their defensive capabilities by keeping Milan at bay in Wednesday’s last-16 second leg clash at White Hart Lane.

That result has given Crouch reason to be bullish, insisting anything is possible for Tottenham.

"Why can’t we get to the final? I can’t give you one reason why not and believe we can achieve anything now."
