The Iceland international had the choice between joining the Merseysiders and the north London club when leaving 1899 Hoffenheim in the summer of 2012, with the 24-year-old opting to move to White Hart Lane.

However, ahead of the two sides’ meeting at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, Sigurdsson says: “At the time, I was really happy to come to Tottenham. And I still am.

“I’m really enjoying it. It’s a fantastic club and in the last couple of seasons we’ve shown the ambition to become better. Hopefully in the next couple of years, it will be really good.

Because they didn’t qualify for Europe, Liverpool are playing one game a week and it’s benefited them quite a bit, because they’re fresh and ready to go in every game.

“It will be a disappointment if we don’t finish higher than fifth.

“We brought a lot of players in last summer and we know it’s going to take time. It depends on some of the players coming in — some of them fit in straight away, some need a few months or a season just to get used to English football. That’s life.

“If we can finish in the top four, it will be fantastic.

“Would continuity help us for next season? I don’t see why not. There are fantastic players here and we have good staff all around.

“If we start next season well, then everything is possible. Most of the new players will be in their second season so they will be used to English football by then and they will have settled in.”
