Niko Kranjcar has claimed that he would be happy to play for Tottenham Hotspur for the rest of his career.

The Croatian midfielder moved to White Hart Lane from Portsmouth in January for what has proven to be a bargain £2.5million transfer fee.

“If I stay at Spurs for the whole of my career, then I will be a happy footballer,” Kranjcar told the Evening Standard. “I am playing for a big club, especially appreciated in England. You always want to achieve the most you can and my goals are set for the highest standards but we’ve proved this season we’re a big team.

“If we could win the FA Cup this year, it would give us a lot of confidence that we could claim more major trophies.

“Once you get the feeling of winning the FA Cup, you want to win it again, achieve even bigger goals and reach even higher. From my experience, winning an important competition makes you try to be better and try to achieve it again.

“The goal for this club is to qualify regularly for the Champions League. There are new projects for the future, such as building the new stadium, so we want to establish ourselves.

“With the history Spurs have, this is what we want to try to achieve and now we believe we have the quality to try to push on.

“Our recent results have given us massive self-belief because we’ve won games despite having a lot of injuries. We’ve said since the start of the season that we have one of the best squads and now we are proving it.

“Our main focus is this next month and a half, to try to reach the massive goal of getting into the top four, which hasn’t been achieved since 1990, and trying to win the FA Cup.”
