Ardiles comments on Tottenham's upcoming match against Liverpool

The Tottenham Hotspur legend is tipping his former side to win well against the Reds.

Former Tottenham Hotspur player and manager Ossie Ardiles has taken to Twitter ahead of Spurs’ return to Premier League action this weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side take on Liverpool at White Hart Lane on Saturday and victory for the North London club could see them climb as high as third in the table if other results also go their way.

Ardiles for one appears to be banking on a home victory in the first top flight match since the international break, suggesting as such on social media on Thursday afternoon.

While travelling to see former Tottenham players Graham Roberts and Paul Miller inducted into the club’s hall of fame, Ardiles tweeted his excitement at seeing the former pros rewarded before adding, “Saturday good win versus Liverpool; great week.”

Ardiles made 221 appearances for Tottenham as a player before returning to manage the club in 1993.

Now that job belongs to Pochettino and the Argentine will be hoping to make Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s first game in charge one to forget.
