Sigurdsson: Spurs better than Reds

New Tottenham signing Gylfi Sigurdsson has revealed he snubbed a move to Liverpool because he believes there is more chance of success at White Hart Lane.

It was widely expected that Sigurdsson would follow Brendan Rodgers, the manager under whom he flourished on loan at Swansea last season, to Anfield when the Northern Irishman replaced ousted boss Kenny Dalglish.

However, Spurs swooped to hijack the move with an £8 million bid for the Hoffenheim midfielder, who explained his u-turn by pointing out the differing potential of the two clubs.

"Liverpool are also a fantastic club but if you look at where Tottenham have finished in the last few years, they finished above Liverpool," Sigurdsson told The Sun.

"Everything about Tottenham just felt right for me. With a new manager, a new training ground and plans for a new stadium, I believe there are exciting times are ahead.

"I think everyone expected me to follow Brendan. But I had made my mind up to come to Tottenham and I'm happy with my decision.

"Brendan's a fantastic manager, I enjoyed my time at Swansea with him and hopefully he will do well at Liverpool. I spoke to him briefly after I had made my decision.

"What I said to him after I told him I wasn't going to Liverpool is between me and him. Obviously I owe him a lot. But in that sense it's a new era for me."

Spurs have also signed £10 million Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen this summer as they look to strengthen the squad.
