Tottenham coach Steffen Freund insists they're in the FA Cup to win it.

Freund, 42, was part of the Spurs side who lost the 1999 FA Cup semi-final to Newcastle and insisted, despite Tottenham currently sitting third in the Premier League, Andre Villas-Boas’ side are targeting another good Cup run this time around.

He said: "If you can win the FA Cup it would be a special season. We are strong enough now as a club, (so) maybe it’s time to win it again after eight victories and a fantastic history. It’s great to be involved.

"I’m East German and there was a wall and so it was difficult to watch Premiership football, but English football plus the FA Cup is special.

"I can remember when I came over: the atmosphere was a little bit different; a little bit more special than normal games. I can’t wait."
