Glenn Hoddle 'open to Tottenham approach' - report
The ex-England boss would apparently be interested in taking on the managerial position at his former club.

FORMER TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR manager Glenn Hoddle would be interested in returning to the club to succeed the sacked Andre Villas-Boas, a source close to him has revealed.

Technical coordinator Tim Sherwood, a former Spurs midfielder, has been placed in interim charge of first-team affairs following Villas-Boas’s dismissal as manager on Monday.

Hoddle, 56, has not worked as a manager since leaving Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2006, but he appears eager to return to Spurs, where he made his name as a player before becoming coach in 2001.

A story published on a website co-founded by Hoddle on Tuesday said: “ understands that Hoddle will certainly help if the club makes an approach.”

Hoddle has also received backing from his former Spurs team-mate Ossie Ardiles, who also managed the club between 1993 and 1994.

“For me, the man for the job is Glenn Hoddle,” Ardiles told talkSPORT. ”I think he is a wonderful manager and he is a lot more mature, so I think he will be a wonderful choice. He knows everything about the Premier League and Spurs especially.”

Thrashed 5-0 by Liverpool in the Premier League last weekend, Spurs host London rivals West Ham United in the League Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday before returning to league action at Southampton on Sunday.

They will be without captain Michael Dawson and midfielder Paulinho, both of whom are suspended, against West Ham, while holding player Sandro is expected to be out for around a week with a calf problem.
