Gudjohnsen sets sights on Villa after joining Spurs with point to prove

04 February 2010 09:53
Eidur Gudjohnsen hopes to prove against Aston Villa on Saturday that he made the right choice by joining Tottenham Hotspur and not West Ham United.  

The Iceland international, who spent six years at Chelsea, signed on loan from Monaco last week and is delighted to be back in the 'special' atmosphere of the Barclays Premier League.  

Ex-Barcelona striker Gudjohnsen said: 'I didn't think that I'd be coming back here. When I was with Chelsea I would probably have said I'll never play for Tottenham because of the rivalry but never say never in football.  

Ice-man cometh: Eidur Gudjohnsen has returned to the Premier League

'I had two options that were equal financially. I hope this is the right choice. It's up to me to show everyone that it is and that I can help the team move upwards. 

  'The atmosphere makes the Premier League special, the passion of the fans and waking up on a match day it seems the whole world is looking at the Premier League. I missed that.

'In Spain you have a similar passion for the game but not quite the same. In France it was completely different and it didn't fit with my personality.

'I'm really looking forward to being back in the Premier League with Tottenham. I've found big motivation again and will focus on doing everything I can to help the team.'
