TVNZ FC: Spurs legend Steve Perryman on winning trophies, football's evolution, and the Champions League draw

After 866 appearances for Tottenham Hotspur, legendary English footballer Steve Perryman knows a thing or two about the Premier League club.

The 67-year-old made his TVNZ FC debut after sitting down with Chris Chang and fellow panellists Victor Waters and Jack Mabire to discuss his old club and the stellar career he had there between 1969 and 1986.

"I know it's all about the money today and the rewards and all that stuff but it suited me to be loyal," Perryman said.

"I'm at a top club, I got in the first team at 17 so why would I want to leave?"

Perryman said he got to "see the world" thanks to his football career and made some lifelong friends along the way playing for Spurs.

"I played with the likes of Jimmy Greaves, Pat Jennings and Alan Gilzean," he said.

The stars have since changed though, with the likes of Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen now attempting to lead Spurs back to their glory days alongside manager Mauricio Pochettino.

"I would hate to see those two players leave," Perryman said.

"And Pochettino is a very good manager and it would be cruel for us to lose him."

In Perryman's 17 years at Tottenham, he won the FA Cup twice, the League Cup twice and the EUFA Cup twice as well.
