Vancouver Whitecaps owner Steve Nash reveals love for Tottenham

Former NBA superstar Steve Nash has revealed his long standing support for English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur.

Nash, who owns MLS side Vancouver Whitecaps, revealed his passion for the north London club stemmed from family history, given his Dad originally hails from London.

"My grandparents supported Spurs, my dad, everyone. So it was a long-standing tradition," Nash told MLSSoccer.com.

"We used to go over every year. When we were kids it was still a bit rough, so we waited a little while [before going to games].

"Back then there was still a lot of standing, it wasn't all-seaters and there was a bit of trouble at games. Even though we'd go over a lot, I wasn't able to go to a lot of games [at White Hart Lane]. But I've seen Spurs there a couple of dozen times over in my life."

And if his two favourite clubs ever faced off in a match?

"I can never ever see myself wanting Spurs to lose," Nash admitted

"But if Spurs played the Whitecaps, in the World Club Championship say, that would be a good problem to have."
