Italian website Sport Mediaset have produced arguably the craziest claim surrounding Tottenham… ever!
They suggest today that Diego Maradona, former Argentina legend and a coach who has never really proven himself, is in the running to take over from Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane.
Leaving aside the fact that AVB appears to have got things back on track with recent wins over Fulham and Sunderland, following the disappointing mauling at Manchester City, it is safe to say El Diego is not in the running for the Spurs job.
It would hardly be in the character of Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to bring in the biggest football maverick on the planet.
Arguably, the lack of a decent candidate has aided Villas-Boas whilst there is not a concerted campaign from the club’s support to oust the Portuguese coach.
Most Spurs supporters understand just what a radical overhaul took place at the club over the past summer and if results go their way over the Christmas period, a top four spot is very possible.
Still, this gives us an opportunity to put up pictures and video of Diego Maradona in a Tottenham shirt, from Ossie Ardiles’ 1986 testimonial.
