Gylfi Sigurdsson insists he has no regrets about choosing to join Tottenham over Liverpool when he left Hoffenheim in 2012.
The Icelandic international was offered the chance to move to Anfield when Brendan Rodgers took charge on Merseyside in the summer of 2012. However, Liverpool were stuck in a transitional period while Tottenham were pushing for a top four spot.
Sigurdsson rejected Liverpool in favour of Tottenham but now sees the Reds challenging for the title while it is looking increasingly likely that White Hart Lane will settle for Europa League football once again.
Not only have Tottenham failed to break into the top four, Sigurdsson himself has struggled to recreate the form he enjoyed whilst on loan to Swansea.
Despite his struggles, Sigurdsson is adamant he made the right decision in choosing to move to north London from Hoffenheim in a deal worth £8.8m.
He said in the Evening Standard: "People have asked me that, but at the time I was really happy to come to Tottenham, and I still am.
"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."
Sigurdsson will travel with Tottenham to Merseyside this weekend, hoping to show Liverpool exactly what they missed out on. Spurs are buoyed by their 3-2 comeback against Southampton but face the Premier League top scorer and in-form player Luis Suarez. Sigurdsson hopes his goal from the substitute bench against the Saints will convince Tim Sherwood to start him.
The 24-year-old added: "It's normal to make a couple of changes and it keeps everyone on their toes. You always have to be ready for the next game."
