Swansea City star Gylfi Sigurdsson reflects on Tottenham Hotspur days

Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson explains the reasons he could not play his best football at Tottenham Hotspur.

Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has been reflecting on his time spent at Tottenham Hotspur.

The Iceland international was on the books of the North London club for two years from 2012 until 2014, having joined them from Hoffenheim for a reported transfer fee of £8 million.

The 25-year-old attacker arrived at White Hart Lane amid much hope and expectations, but he failed to make a huge impact for Spurs.

Despite showing his class and quality on occasions, Sigurdsson failed to convince the Tottenham officials that he should be kept on following the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as the club’s manager at the start of the 2014-15 campaign.

Swansea came calling and snapped him up in the summer transfer window, but Sigurdsson has no regrets.

‘Looking back, I really enjoyed my time and really enjoyed playing, particularly in the London derbies and in the Europa League for two seasons too', he told the FourFourTwo magazine.

'There were a lot of changes during my time there, though. I had three managers and a lot of players came in and went out again.

'Hopefully they can get some stability back into the club and can get some success there in the next couple of seasons'

One has to have some sympathy for Sigurdsson, who had to accommodate his game to the wishes of three different managers.

Now at Swansea, the former Reading star has recaptured his best form and has established himself as a key player for the Swans.

In 10 Premier League appearances so far this season, Sigurdsson has scored one goal and created 25 chances, while having a pass accuracy of 85% and a shot accuracy of 75%.
