The Daily Mail have revealed that a whole host of Tottenham Hotspur legends attended the funeral for legendary footballer Jimmy Greaves this afternoon.

Greaves, who scored 266 goals in 379 games for Tottenham, a club record that still stands tall today, passed away at home on September 19.

The legendary striker, who won the FA Cup twice and the European Cup-Winners’ Cup at Spurs, also played for Chelsea in his career, and both teams honoured him ahead of their London derby last month.

Greaves scored 44 goals in 57 senior appearances for England, the fourth-highest in Three Lions history.

He was a member of the 1966 World Cup-winning squad, although he famously did not feature in the final victory over West Germany.

The Mail have revealed that Ossie Ardiles, Micky Hazard, Steve Perryman, Graham Roberts, Martin Chivers and Paul Miller were at the service at Chelmsford Crematorium in Essex.

Additionally, television sports presenter Gary Newbon and former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp were also in attendance. 

The report stated that the former stars appeared in good spirits as they spoke with each other upon their arrival before the private funeral. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

It is nice to see that these legends paid their respects to Greavsie, who is considered by many Spurs fans who were lucky enough to watch him play to be the best ever to represent our great club.

  1. We have all got to go sometime but never-the-less I was gutted to hear of his death. I was honoured to watch Jimmy many times at WHL – the unbelievable things he did on
    the pitch could only be described as Greavsie magic.
    I remember a newspaper headline after the Spurs v Burnley cup final – ‘Burnley greaves tonight’
    Thanks for all the memories – rest in peace. If Heaven has a football team, he will have already played his debut in which he will have scored !
    His family should be very proud.
    It would be fitting if a statue or memorial could be placed at our new stadium wouldn’t it ?
