Norwich City defender Sebastien Bassong is ready to face former club Tottenham this weekend.

The Norwich man played 45 times for Tottenham between 2009-2012, scoring the first-ever goal for Spurs in the Champions League, against Young Boys of Berne.

Bassong said: "They were great years at Spurs for me. I learned a lot playing in the Champions League with William Gallas and having Harry Redknapp as manager taught me a lot too. It gave me experience. I have had bad times too, but I am happy because I wouldn’t have been the player I am today.

"It is a great honour for me to be captain. There is a lot of responsibility. That’s good for me. It doesn’t change much for me. I used to be really vocal anyway so I have just stayed the same. You want your team to do well."
