Graham Roberts has suggested that Tottenham Hotspur should consider giving Glenn Hoddle the head coach position.
Reports emerged yesterday evening that Tottenham had ended their interest in Paulo Fonseca and had instead set their sights on former Fiorentina boss Gennaro Gattuso (Sky Sports).
Those close to Fonseca have been left stunned by the developments after telling Football.London that everything had been agreed between Tottenham and the Portuguese to become the club’s next head coach.
Fonseca and Tottenham’s new managing director of football, Fabio Paratici had already met in Italy to discuss potential transfer targets and discuss the season ahead.
Hoddle took over as Spurs manager in 2001 having resigned from his role at Southampton and finished ninth in that Premier League campaign, and then 10th the following season, before he was sacked in by Daniel Levy in September 2003.
Tottenham have since shelved their plans to proceed with Gattuso (The Athletic).
Roberts took to Twitter to claim that Hoddle is a better option than some of the current candidates for the job.
Why not get @glennHoddle back as manager he knows the club he had no money the last time and he will do better than any of these managers being named

While Hoddle is a Tottenham legend, he is not the right person to take the club forward. Missing out on Julian Nagelsmann was a huge blow earlier in the year and it now appears that the club are getting more and more desperate in their search.
