Video: Andre Villas Boas and Michael Dawson look forward to Spurs’ game against Cardiff
Spurs manager Andre Villas Boas and captain Michael Dawson have both been talking about this weekend’s trip to Cardiff.
Villas Boas said: “We have started well in the league. It will be extremely important for us to get a win out of the game against Cardiff, understanding that they beat Man City and over there they’re very, very strong.”
Speaking after last night’s win over Tromso, Dawson said: “The squad will certainly be tested, certainly after picking injuries up tonight to Danny Rose, Mousa [Dembele] and Younes [Kaboul]. We’ll see how they are tomorrow, hopefully they are not too serious.
“As I say, that’s why you a big squad, because, as you say, playing on Sunday at Cardiff then Tuesday at Villa, the squad’s going to be tested.”
He added: “We move on to the weekend’s game against Cardiff and that’s all we can do.
“It’s a busy schedule but as players we love playing football and we’ve got to prepare right, look after ourselves and go out there and perform like we did today.”
