Spurs fan to play against boyhood heroes in Champions League tonight
A FOOTBALLER and boyhood Spurs fan from Potters Bar will be among the Young Boys attempting to derail Tottenham’s Champions League dream tonight (Tuesday).
Former Chancellor’s School student Scott Sutter was part of the Swiss side’s 25-man squad that took on Spurs in the first leg of the tournament’s third qualifying round.
Sutter, who was born in Enfield and raised in Potters Bar, started his career with Millwall Under-10s.
He later moved on to Barnet and then Charlton, before quitting England to join Grasshoppers in Switzerland.
Sutter, 24, then joined Young Boys in Bern last summer, but admitted he still remains a firm Spurs supporter.

“I’m definitely still a fan of Spurs,” he said.
“A lot of the Premier League gets televised over here and, when I haven’t got a game myself or if I’m in a hotel then I’ll definitely try to watch it.

“I think when you start playing professionally then you lose a little bit of that, the way it used to be, but I do still watch out for Tottenham and hope that they do well.”
Sutter, whose father is Swiss, added: “Hopefully we go through; it’s a great experience for us as well, trying to get into the Champions League, but if not then at least Tottenham are in the next stage instead.
“I suppose that if we lose, I’m glad it will be them!”
The second leg of the tie will take place at White Hart Lane next Wednesday evening, kick off 7.45pm
