Vlad Chiriches: Delighted to have the chance to join Spurs

Steaua Bucharest recently confirmed that a deal has been agreed with Spurs for Chiriches, who is set to finalise his switch to White Hart Lane.

The 23-year-old had been close to a move to Spurs earlier in the summer but the negotiations failed, and Chiriches says it was a hard time before the move was resurrected.

He told DigiSport TV: "I had a hard time after the first round of negotiations failed, I even cried. I was upset for two days.

"I hope there won't be too much difference between the level of the Premier League and the level at which I have played. The most memorable moment of my career at Steaua was the winning of the championship, something I had dreamt of all my life.

"I hope I will be able to make my mark in England too."

The defender went on to admit the decision to leave was a tough one and offered his thanks to Steaua boss Laurentiu Reghecampf.

He added: "I will miss all my team-mates from Steaua, especially my friend Mihai Pintilii, and I wish them good luck and to win the championship again.

"I thank Laurentiu Reghecampf for everything."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
