Former Tottenham Hotspur striker, Peter Crouch, has revealed in his latest ‘Ask Crouchie’ column in The Daily Mail that the Lilywhites are one of the sides he supports following his retirement.
Crouch spent just two seasons at White Hart Lane after arriving from Portsmouth in the summer of 2009 but the striker was involved in some big moments during his time at the club.
He was crucial in not just helping the North Londoners to qualify for the Champions League for the first time ever, but also to make the quarterfinals of the competition in the subsequent season.
Having played for a number of clubs during his distinguished career, the former England international predictably found it difficult to name one team he cheers for after retirement.
He revealed that Spurs’ London rivals, Chelsea were his boyhood club but admitted that Tottenham, along with QPR and Liverpool, are the teams he supports now.
When asked who he supports after hanging up his boots, Crouch responded: “It’s not an easy question to answer.
“Chelsea were my team as a kid but I lost all my feeling for them when I started going back as a player and got relentless stick from their fans.
“So supporting Chelsea after I finished was never an option. You might laugh but I have three teams.
“I imagine I’m going to take my boys to QPR when they are older, as it is not too far for us.
“The other two are Liverpool and Tottenham, the two clubs where I had my happiest times as a player.”
Spurs Web Opinion
It is safe to say that the love between Spurs fans and Crouch is mutual. Given the brilliant moments he was involved in at North London, I am not surprised that we are one of the clubs the striker feels an affinity towards. However, I am surprised that Stoke City do not feature in his top three given that he spent eight years at the club.
