The tenacious Dutch midfielder received a rapturous reception in North London on Saturday as he made his Spurs bow as a substitute against Porto in a pre-season friendly.
Davids, 32-years-old, concedes that recent events in London had left him uneasy but after contemplation, he concluded that a move to Tottenham was a prospect too tempting to resist.
Expectations are high at Tottenham for the new season and after receiving a fantastic reception, Davids is looking forward to the campaign with relish.
''Yes, of course, what happened made me think,'' admitted Davids.
''But I took the view that I had to show the people we are professionals and we should carry on giving them what they enjoy.
''I've not only come here to be a teacher. I'm expecting to learn as much from the others as they from me.
''I've never experienced anything like it. Yes, it was awesome, fantastic for a warm up match.
''From this game it is obvious we have very special players.''
