Phil Collins makes a significant donation to help Jimmy Greaves

According to the Daily Star (h/t Standard), Music legend Phil Collins has made a substantial contribution to help Tottenham Hotspur legend Jimmy greaves.

The former Spurs great continues to be treated and monitored in hospital after being admitted on Tuesday. The former England striker suffered a severe stroke in May 2015, which left him wheelchair-bound. (h/t Independent)

Greaves is Tottenham’s record goalscorer and the club confirmed that he has indeed been hospitalised but played down fears of another stroke or him having contracted coronavirus. (h/t Independent)

Jimmy Greaves is Tottenham’s all-time top scorer

The news of Collins’ contribution was revealed by Terry Baker, Greaves’ agent. Collins is a Tottenham fan and views the former striker as his boyhood hero.

Baker has also given an unencouraging update regarding Greaves’ condition. In spite of that, let’s hope that he gets better in the coming days and recovers soon.

“No news is good news at the moment.”

Collins also phones Baker regularly to enquire about Greaves’ condition. Nobody has scored more top-flight goals in English football than the 80-year-old, who was a part of England’s legendary 1966 World Cup-winning squad.

Greaves started off his football career at Chelsea before moving to AC Milan. He then returned to England with Tottenham in 1961 and went on to score an impressive 266 goals in 379 competitive appearances. (h/t Standard)

Greaves is the all time top scorer for Tottenham

He enjoyed a fruitful stay at White Hart Lane and ended up winning two FA Cups and a Cup Winners Cup with Tottenham. Incidentally, it was his injury in the World Cup in 1966 that brought Geoff Hurst into the starting line-up. Hurst went on to score a hattrick in the final against West Germany and the rest is history.

Greaves is a true footballing legend for both Tottenham Hotspur and England. We hope he can make a quick recovery soon. We would also like to express our admiration for Collins, who turned up to help his hero when it was most needed.
