Patrick Vieira - Header

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: “Fans 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.

“It looks like he is keen on a move back to Britain, but whether it’ll be Spurs or not remains to be seen.”

He added: “I would say the fans would reserve judgment until they see him play – or at least I’d like to think they would.

“Once he proves he is still at the top of his game, then they will warm to him.”
