Ginola would 'love' Tottenham job

David Ginola

Tottenham Hotspur legend David Ginola has revealed he would love to manage Spurs in the future as speculation intensifies over the future of Andre Villas-Boas.

The 46-year-old French ace spent three years at White Hart Lane making a total of 100 appearances and scoring 13 goals for Spurs before moving on to Aston Villa and eventually retiring at Everton.

He began his career at Toulon and before long made his name at Paris Saint-Germain where he resided for three years in the 1990s before making his £2.5 million move to Newcastle United. He was named French Player of the Year in 1993 prior to his move to England where he was subsequently names PFA Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year in 1998/99 with Tottenham.

“I would love to manage Spurs one day,” he revealed.

“I will have my UEFA A license in the next eight months. If you become a manager one day the obvious thing is to manage a club you like, you know and you love.”

Whilst his announcement might have been better-timed, it is unlikely he will be taking over the reigns from the much-maligned Andre Villas-Boas any time soon – Ginola will likely take on a role as a coach of assistant where he can learn his trade and develop his managerial credentials but he could certainly be a contender for the future.

He returned from playing over a decade ago and has been working in the media often appearing as a pundit in England as well as abroad but he clearly still has the hunger and ambition to be involved in football on a day-to-day basis and his love for his former club has not dwindled despite the years.
