Tottenham assistant manager Steffen Freund’s return to England has rekindled his love affair with the FA Cup.

During five seasons at Spurs Freund made the semi-finals of the competition twice, first in 1999 when Spurs lost to Newcastle in extra time and then two years later when they were defeated by local rivals Arsenal.

Although Freund won the League Cup with Spurs 14 years ago, the former midfielder is still gutted he did not experience stepping out at Wembley for an FA Cup final.

“We lost in the semi-finals to Newcastle in 1999 and I have to say that I’m still disappointed,” Freund said.

“If we could have played an FA Cup Final at Wembley... I can’t say nothing is bigger than that but it is definitely a fantastic moment for anyone who has played the game.”
