Young Rapid Wien defender Martin Moormann has revealed he would love to meet Tottenham Hotspur in the Europa Conference League, admitting he is a fan of the North London club.
Spurs are yet to find out their fate in the Conference League, with the club’s last group game against Rennes having been called off due to a Covid outbreak.
Tottenham would need three points in that game to qualify to the knockout stages over Vitesse Arnhem but UEFA revealed on Sunday that the Lilywhites’ match against Rennes will not be rescheduled as they were unable to find a solution that suited both parties.
The game is now set to be decided by their Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body, with previous precedent suggesting that the Ligue 1 club could be awarded a 3-0 due to Spurs not being able to field a team.
However, it has also been suggested that the CEDB could rule that Rennes had not been flexible enough in trying to arrange another date for the game and could force them to fulfil their clash against Spurs next month.
With the decision pending, both Tottenham and Vitesse have were handed the same ball number in the Conference League draw, with Rapid Wien awaiting whoever makes it through to the next round.
Moormann, who broke into the Austrian club’s starting eleven at the start of the season and has been impressed with his solid displays at centre-back, has now admitted that playing Tottenham would be a dream come true for him.

Spurs Web Opinion
I think the majority of Spurs fans would not mind if UEFA handed the points to Rennes as the Conference League would only congest the club’s fixture schedule even further going into the new year.
It is not a competition that is particularly prestigious to win and I would rather see Conte put his focus on achieving top four and going as far as possible in the domestic cup competitions.
