Martin Jol visited Spurs Lodge for a look around on Tuesday afternoon and said the decision to take up his post in the new management structure was not a difficult one.
For the first assistant to Head Coach Jacques Santini it was a return to the English football environment, with the 48-year-old former Dutch international having played for West Brom and Coventry in the early to mid-eighties.
"It is very nice, I have met some people and it is just like all those years ago when I played in England - still the same atmosphere and nice pitches," said the former Head Coach of Dutch outfit RKC Waalwijk. "I am looking forward to starting on Thursday.
"It wasn't a hard decision for me to come, but if many other clubs had asked me to become assistant to the Head Coach I wouldn't have done it having managed and trained in Holland for 15 years.
"Spurs is different. I had a two or three minute talk with my wife and we said we have to do it.
"I was six years at my old club and it was a big challenge. I knew Frank Arnesen - not personally - from PSV Eindhoven and he knew me. He and Jacques Santini have shown a lot of confidence in me and the Premier League is where I wanted to go. An easy decision."
