Young Boys fullback Spycher fires Tottenham warning

Young Boys defender Christoph Spycher has fired a warning at Champions League opponents Tottenham.

Spurs fans were celebrating after the north Londoners were paired with the Swiss runners-up for their first match in Europe's Premier club competition for almost half a century.

But former Switzerland left-back Spycher is planning to have the last laugh and prevent Tottenham reaching the lucrative group stage.

"It's great that they were celebrating but, for sure, we hope that after the two games we will be celebrating," said the 32-year-old.

Spycher's ambition is reflected behind the scenes at Young Boys, the club last week replacing their chief executive with a man they feel is better able to boost their European profile.

And despite being huge underdogs for the tie, they have already claimed one scalp en route to this stage, stunning Fenerbahce in Istanbul.

"We had little chance against Fenerbahce and we did it," Spycher said. "So we believe in ourselves, we believe if we make two really perfect games that we have a chance to get through to the Champions League.

"That's a dream for us and we will work very hard for that."
