Terry Venables has urged Tottenham Hotspur fans to welcome Patrick Vieira, should he join the club.
Venables feels that the White Hart Lane faithful should forget the Frenchman’s previous time at Arsenal as he would be a good signing.
Spurs fans seem to be split on whether they’d be happy to see Vieira in a Spurs shirt.
He said: â€œFans should welcome him as no matter where he used to play, he is a winner. As long as he is still fit and not overweight or anything, he would be good for Tottenham.
â€œIt looks like he is keen on a move back to Britain, but whether itâ€™ll be Spurs or not remains to be seen.â€
He added: â€œI would say the fans would reserve judgment until they see him play â€“ or at least Iâ€™d like to think they would.
â€œOnce he proves he is still at the top of his game, then they will warm to him.â€
