Radu Dragusin explains Tottenham move

Radu Dragusin has confirmed he turned down an offer from Bayern Munich to follow his dream of playing in the Premier League.

Bayern made a late attempt to hijack the deal, but Dragusin opted to move to north London, with Eric Dier instead joining the Bundesliga champions from Spurs.

Asked about rejecting interest from Bayern, the stopper said: “Yes, that is right. I chose Tottenham because I felt it was the right step for me and I had a really good conversation with the coach.

“I saw that they wanted me from a long time ago, like one month before the transfer window, so I thought this is the right choice for me.

“I really believe in this team and that it is a good environment for me to continue my career and to progress in [Tottenham’s] incredible stadium and [with these] team-mates.

“The sky is the limit. We hope we will be as high as possible in the League and we can then see from there. My dream was to play in the Premier League, so that was part of it. I think the team here, the guys here, are on a good trajectory. I felt joining them can help me a lot.

“I like the way of the games in the Premier League, the physicality, intensity, speed and aggression… it is a lot of things I can prefer more.”
