In an interview with GiveMeSport, former Tottenham centre-back Ramon Vega said that he enjoyed every moment of his Spurs career.

The Swiss defender signed for the north London club in 1997 following a seven-month stint at Serie A side Cagliari Calcio.

He made 64 appearances for Tottenham during his four years at the club, helping them secure their third League Cup trophy in 1999 – a 1-0 win over Leicester City courtesy of a last-minute goal from Allan Nielsen.

Vega has very fond memories of his time at White Hart Lane, stating that he was very lucky to play for them.

"Spurs gave me a great platform moving to England. I enjoyed pretty much every single time I played for them. It's a great club," he said.

"Coming from Serie A in Italy was a very exciting time. Winning the League Cup with them is something I can look back on and enjoy.

"I look back, it's great memories. Spurs are one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League, and I was very lucky to play for them."

A lot has changed at Tottenham in the intervening years. According to Vega, they've improved in a multitude of areas, on and off the pitch, and now place greater emphasis on youth and academy players.

"I'm still in London because of them, and I still enjoy it. I thank Spurs a lot for what they gave me as a person and a footballer," Vega added.

"I think Spurs have improved quite a lot since I left, in many ways – the football, the philosophy, the academy, the players. There are more young players involved than in my time.

"We were happy around the top 10 but wanted to be top 5 or top 6. They're a top five team now."
