Tottenham Hotspur defender Etienne Capoue believes that he was right not to move to Liverpool in 2011.

Etienne Capoue has said that he was right to delay his move from Toulouse to the Premier League.

The defender joined Tottenham Hotspur in the summer, but had been a target of Liverpool's in 2011.

The 25-year-old told The Telegraph: "I think it was the right decision. I knew English clubs were interested in me, but one reason why I didn't come earlier was because the chairman didn't agree and the other reason was that I wasn't really ready for the Premier League.

"It's a very competitive club and a strong club. It's what I wanted. I want to get in to the Champions League here and also I had the confidence of the coach. The fact that many different people have come from different countries and different continents has made a really good atmosphere in the team.

"In France it's not the same. Here people seem to live off football and that gave me a new taste for football, the spirit, the people, the mentality, the atmosphere in the stadium and very good competition within the clubs."
