Gylfi Sigurdsson insists he made the right decision in turning down Liverpool to join Tottenham Hotspur, despite the contrasting fortunes of the two clubs this season.

Brendan Rodgers was keen on signing the Iceland international following his appointment in 2012 having brought him to Swansea on loan from Hoffenheim during the 2011/12 campaign, after managing him at Reading in 2009.

Sigurdsson rejected the opportunity to link up with his former manager however and moved to White Hart Lane in 2012, but has yet to taste Champions League football with the club with chances of qualification this season slim with seven games remaining.

Liverpool meanwhile find themselves in a three horse race for the Premier League title alongside Chelsea and Manchester City and have a real chance of ending their 24 year wait for a league triumph.

But ahead of Tottenham's trip to Liverpool on Sunday, 24-year-old Sigurdsson has no regrets over the decision to reject a move to Merseyside.

"People have asked me that, but at the time I was really happy to come to Tottenham, and I still am," Sigurdsson was quoted as saying by the Evening Standard. 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."

Tottenham's Achilles heel this season has been finding a balance between their league campaign and European competition, which was brought to an end by Benfica last week. In games immediately following Europa League qualifiers, group games and knock out ties this season, the north London club won just five games out of 12. Sigurdsson believes Liverpool's lack of a European schedule has impacted their glittering campaign.

"Hopefully in the next couple of years, it will be really good," Sigurdsson continued. "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."

Tottenham travel to Anfield this Sunday in the second meeting between the side's this season after Liverpool thrashed their opponents 5-0 at White Hart Lane last December.
