Tottenham coach Freund: FA Cup important to this club

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."
