Tottenham legend, Micky Hazard, has claimed that the club should look towards Ossie Ardiles as their next head coach following Jose Mourinho’s sacking.

Spurs parted ways with the Special One in late April after 17 months in charge of the North London outfit, although Mourinho is already lined up to join Roma next season.

Ryan Mason was named interim head coach until the end of the campaign, promoted from his previous role of Head of Academy Player Development.

When asked on the Spurs Versus Podcast, Hazard claimed that, if it were up to him, he would appoint someone like Ossie Ardiles or Jurgen Klinsmann.

The former Spurs man said that we would want someone who knows the history and culture of the club, implementing that into the current side. Beyond former players, Hazard added that he would love to see Marcelo Bielsa given a chance.

Ardiles, of course, played ten seasons for Tottenham as a player and later returned as a manager.

Hazard said: “Well in my biased decision I’d appoint someone like Osvaldo Ardiles or Klinsmann.

“Even as a team, I’m sort of biased because I’m a great believer in recruiting the Tottenham way, people who know the history and traditions of this great football club and are able to implement it, so I’m a great believer in that.

“But if you push that aside, I’d love to see Bielsa.
