The news of former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s emergency surgery for an internal haemorrhage rocked the footballing community last night.
Fans and critics across the world laid aside their rivalries as they sent best wishes for his speedy recovery. It goes without saying that Sir Alex is one of the most legendary managers to have ever set foot in the Premier League.
Manchester United were a force to reckon with across Europe under his guidance and suffice to say, it will be a while before they can find anybody who is half as great as him.
Of course, losing to a side like that always left a bitter taste in most of our mouths but nothing can deny his influence and impact on English football, in general.
It was great to see Tottenham’s official Twitter account put out a tweet to wish him a quick recovery.

“My dream to coach Tottenham is not easy” – Former Spurs striker speaks out about his dream role
Former Tottenham striker Mido has claimed that his dream is to manage Spurs. The Egypt striker wasn’t prolific in front of goal with 11 goals being his best return at the club.
The retired football spent time at Roma, Marseille and Middlesbrough amongst other clubs and was quoted by Kingfut as saying:
“My dream to coach Tottenham is not easy. I am not English but I am trying to do the right steps, having the right education and maybe try to be an assistant somewhere for two or three years.
“I had an offer to become assistant of Aguirre with Egypt but I don’t think it was right for me at the moment.”
The 35-year-old has plenty of managerial experience but it has mostly been with clubs from Egypt. Mido picked up a couple of trophies with Zamalek and even spoke about leaving Tottenham for more football.
The striker added that he is still picking up his coaching batches as he wants to make it big.
“Education is very important, I am in my last steps for acquiring my coaching badges. If you don’t have the right education as a coach you will not make it to the top level.”
Spurs currently have a great manager in Mauricio Pochettino and we have grown greatly under the Argentine.
Mido might not be ready for a top job in England, but it will be interesting to see how he would channelise his aggression on the touchline.
“We know we have to win” – Tottenham star puts pressure on team ahead of PSV clash
Tottenham star Erik Lamela has put pressure on the club to go out and win against PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday.
Spurs lost their opening two games in their Champions League group, just like PSV, and have to beat the Dutch side if they have any chance of making it into the next round.
Barcelona beat us 4-2 while we lost in the last minute against Inter Milan in our group opener.
Lamela has been one of the stars for Spurs this season and was quoted by the Daily Star as saying:
“We know we have to win. Unfortunately we started the Champions League by losing in Milan.
“After, we lost against Barcelona and we will not have too many more chances, so we have to win.”
The Argentine scored in our 1-0 win over West Ham recently and his form will be crucial in getting all three points against the Dutch team.
Spurs need a bit of a miracle to make it into the next round and the next two clashes against PSV will be important.
Six points from the two games should give us a fighting chance of qualifying for the knockout rounds. Anything less than that, and we might need to defeat Barcelona or Inter Milan in our final group games, which won’t be an easy task.
31-year-old Tottenham star does not believe Spurs is his final club
Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris doesn’t believe he will finish his career at the London club. The Frenchman was taking part in a Q+A session with Telefoot (h/t Evening Standard) and was asked if Spurs would be his final club.
The former Lyon keeper said: “I don’t think so.”
The report adds that should Lloris see out his current contract with Spurs, he would have spent a decade at the club.
The keeper helped the France national side to the World Cup in 2018 but claimed there were no offers for him post the victory.
Lloris has been one of the best keepers in the world in recent years and claimed his future at the club is dependent on our manager.
“My future is tied to Mauricio’s. That is certain.”
The report adds that Pochettino signed a new contract with Spurs in the summer but has been linked with Manchester United and Real Madrid.
Pochettino is one of the best managers in the world and it comes as no surprise that others are interested in him.
Lloris, for his part, has done very well at Tottenham and is only 31. The Frenchman seems to be hitting his prime at the club, which is a huge bonus for us. The only thing he has to work on is removing the minor errors in his game, which hasn’t cost us much.
