"The fact that man was the manager when my Spurs career ended makes my memories of that time even more bitter," Gower told the Independent.
"It grates on me because Graham's got Arsenal blood. He's Mr Highbury. He probably had his reasons, but it still hurts that he sort of pushed me out the door. That's why it would mean everything to play against them in the Premier League."
