Report: Tottenham star is now qualified to take charge of the youth teams

Alasdair Gold has said that Ben Davies is now qualified to coach within the Spurs academy after he was handed his UEFA A Licence.

The Tottenham defender has been working on his coaching badges and he has now successfully completed both his UEFA A and Elite Youth A Licence.

That means that the long-serving Spurs man can take charge of the youth teams at Hotspur Way, with the licenses allowing him to coach teams until the age of 18.

The 30-year-old can also take charge of reserve teams and professional second-tier sides if he wishes after receiving his badges.
