Arsenal legend David Seaman has sparked controversy by admitting that he would like to see Tottenham win the Champions League this season.
Spurs eased into the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 1-0 win away at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night to secure a 4-0 aggregate victory over the Germans.
On talkSPORT Max Rushden asked Seaman: “How great David, if Tottenham were to win the Champions League, how brilliant would that be?”
Seaman replied: “I know, that’d be ace, wouldn’t it!
“No seriously, I swear, I would want them to win. If they were in a final against a foreign team I would want Tottenham to beat them, no doubt about that.
“Say Tottenham were playing Bayern Munich, Barcelona, whoever – I would want the English team to win.”
Rushden then asked Seaman: “Did you want United to beat Bayern Munich in ‘99?”
“Of course I did, there’s no question about it,” replied Seaman.
“I played 75 times for my country, I’d want the English team to win. That’s just the way I am.”
