Glenn's the top boss

Posted on 12 November 2001  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Glenn Hoddle was officially confirmed as the Barclaycard Premiership Manager of the Month for October on Monday morning.

He was handed the trophy in a ceremony at Spurs Lodge by representatives of Barclaycard and immediately declared it was an award for the club in general, not just himself.

"It's an indication of the hard work all the management and staff have put in," said Glenn.

"I'm getting the acclaim and it's so-called my award but I wouldn't say it's my award, it's for all the hard work all the staff have put in, the players have put in and to a certain extent the supporters, they've got behind the team, as well as myself.

"It is a progression from perhaps where we were last season so all in all I've got to be delighted with the fact we're picking up an award early in the season.

"You only get them for results, so that means we're doing something right at this moment in time but nothing has been achieved. It's a lovely award but there is no achievement."

Glenn was also quick point out that the so-called jinx with winning the award had already struck at Elland Road!

He insisted: "Sometimes there is a bit of a jinx on these awards but I'm just pleased that Fenners (John Fennelly, press officer) told me before the Leeds game, so that jinx has had it's time and now we can move onto the Arsenal game.

"There are few managers around the country who will know exactly what I'm talking about."

The award came after wins against Derby County, Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Tranmere Rovers in October.

Glenn added: "Particularly for this award, the games we've played in October we performed well and deserved to win.

"You do get a bit of a lucky break or poor decsion that went your way and you end up winning. I wouldn't miknd a few of those results in the future!

"For the time being, every one of those results was earned, good performances and that was encouraging from the players."
