Glenn Hoddle eyes up Spurs managerial position

Former Tottenham Hotspurs manager Glenn Hoddle has said he is ready to take on the side for a second time, after Andre Villas-Boas was sacked on Wednesday.

The ex-England boss is second favourite among bookmakers for the post - behind Tim Sherwood - and confirmed his interest in the job.

The 56-year-old sat in the White Hart Lane dugout between 2001 and 2003 and is currently without a club, having last managed at Wolves in 2006.

Speaking on Sky Sports 1 he said: "If I was offered the job, yes I would want to go back, even if it was for the sake of the club. (Interim manager) Tim (Sherwood) is in pole position here."
