London – Tottenham Hotspur great Glenn Hoddle on Sunday confirmed his interest in returning to the club to succeed Andre Villas-Boas as manager.

Villas-Boas was sacked last Monday following a 5-0 defeat at home to Liverpool, with technical coordinator Tim Sherwood placed in charge of first-team affairs on a temporary basis.

Hoddle has not managed a team since leaving Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2006, but the former England manager says he would be prepared to step into the vacancy at White Hart Lane.

“I supported Tottenham at eight years of age, I went there aged 12, left when I was 28, went back to manage – it's in my blood and my bones. Yes, I would want to go back,” he told Sky Sports.

“Even if they felt they wanted me to go to the end of the season and wanted something else long-term, I would be prepared to do that for the sake of the football club.”

Hoddle spent 12 years at Spurs as a player, making 490 appearances, and returned to the club as manager between 2001 and 2003. – Sapa-AFP
