Claims suggest that Spurs are lining up Maradona to replace Villas-Boas

Clarín, the largest newspaper in Argentina, are reporting that Tottenham are considering legendary player Diego Maradona as a potential replacement should Andre Villas-Boas depart White Hart Lane, according to The Mirror.

Diego Maradona

The Portuguese coach has found himself under pressure in north London recently, with Spurs sitting outside the European places – though their form has taken an upturn in recent games, with Spurs unbeaten in their last three games and winning two on the bounce.

They also have a negative goal difference, and are looking precarious with Newcastle breathing right down their necks. Suggestions have been made in recent days that the former Chelsea boss could be battling for his job before long, and that Spurs chiefs are already drawing up a list of candidates – with Maradona reportedly right at the top of the list.

The Argentinian’s career in management has been somewhat uninspiring, however, with his most recent time spent at UAE side Al-Wasl. Questions have been raised about whether chairman Daniel Levy would even consider spending what would likely be a rather large amount of money luring the Argentinian to White Hart Lane, and while such an arrangement appears unlikely the fact that such stories are circulating is likely to worry Villas-Boas’ fans.

I want some of what they are smoking. Maradona is now and has always been a joke as a manager. He cannot manage his own affairs let alone a football team. Just goes to show how Argentine newspapers work

Outrageous gutter press drivel, obviously written by a retard who knows absolutely nothing about Football, Tottenham or Levy.
