Tottenham’s new midfield signing Steven Piennar has revealed that he prayed before making his decision to reject Chelsea in favour of a Â£3m move to north London. “I prayed and followed my heart,” said the South African.
Pienaar made his debut in the 1-1 draw against Newcastle United and revealed that he also turned down offers from Spain to move to White Hart Lane.
â€œLooking from the outside, you can see the attacking football Spurs play, it is in a different class, making you sit on the edge of your seat. Everyone can see they are a club on the up, always fighting for a place in the top four and the Champions League.
â€œIt was not about money. I felt wanted here, which is important, and I want to play every game at the highest level. Thatâ€™s why I made this decision. I asked a lot of people, and some were telling me to join Chelsea or go to Spain, but I prayed and followed my heart.
â€œTime will tell if it is the best decision, and if I fail, I will take the responsibility.â€
