Jamie O’Hara has controversially claimed that he would welcome the prospect of Arsene Wenger being appointed as Tottenham Hotspur’s new head coach.

Wenger managed North London rivals Arsenal for a 22-year period having led them to three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups (BBC).

Tottenham have been without a head coach for over sixty days following the dismissal of Jose Mourinho in April.

Their managerial search has been described as a PR disaster (Football.London) having pulled out of talks with Antonio Conte, followed by a remarkable twist of events when they ended talks with Paulo Fonseca during the latter stages of negotiations to switch their focus on Gennaro Gattuso, only to decide against appointing the former Fiorentina boss.

Following his departure from the Emirates, Wenger has been working as Fifa’s chief of global football development (Goal).

He told talkSPORT: “I would have Arsene Wenger at Spurs. We can’t get anyone anyway, so get me Arsene Wenger and I’d take it,”

While nothing would be surprising at this stage, there is no way that any hardened Tottenham fan would welcome Wenger to the white half of North London; should Daniel Levy even dare to entertain the notion, it would only drive the wedge between the fans and  the board considerably further.
