Many people dream of managing the mighty Spurs at some point in their life time, and this is apparently the case with former Lilywhite Mido.
In a recent interview, Mido expressed his desire to return to the Premier League as manager of Tottenham.
Mido spent 18 months in North London between 2005 and 2007, racking up 61 appearances and scoring 19 times in a Spurs shirt.
Apparently the taste for Tottenham life was a pleasant one for Mido as he eyes up a return.
Since he retired at the age of 30, he has managed Egyptian sides Zamalek, Ismaily, and Wadi Degla.
Mido also expressed that leaving Spurs for Middlesbrough in 2007 was one of the biggest regrets of his entire career.
Who knows, maybe he’ll be given the chance to make it up to the Tottenham faithful one day from the dugout rather than the pitch.
What do you think, would Mido make a good Spurs gaffer?
He told the Soccer AM podcast: “I would love to manage Tottenham one day, that’s my dream – to manage in the Premier League and to manage Tottenham.
“It’s not easy because I am not English, but I am trying to make the right steps and the right education, maybe I will try to be an assistant somewhere for two or three years and then see what happens.
“I know it’s not easy but my dream is to be Tottenham manager.
“Leaving Tottenham was one of the worst decisions I made.
“I had the chance to stay and I decided to go to Middlesbrough. I wished I could have stayed longer, but as a person if I didn’t play for three or four games I was going crazy. I knew if I stayed and didn’t play I would get in trouble. It was a difficult decision and if I decided now I would have stayed.”
