The 44-year-old Southampton-born player spent spent 12 years at Tottenham from 1992 all the way up until his release from the club in 2004, and made 364 appearances for the Lilywhites during that period.

And during an exclusive interview with Stadium Astro's official YouTube channel, Anderson explained why he felt he deserved better treatment from the Spurs hierarchy:

Anderton featured regularly for the England national team between the years of 1994 and 2001, and earned 30 caps, a tally that would most definitely have been considerably higher had his career not been hampered by so many injury problems.

Levy's time at Tottenham has divided opinion amongst Spurs fans, although many believe he is now holding the club back with his stubborn behaviour with regards to transfers, both in and out of the club.

Following Anderton's release from Spurs, he finished his career with spells at Birmingham City, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Bournemouth.
