Praise from Sir Alex

Posted on 31 July 2004  - 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).

Sir Alex Ferguson has heaped praise on Jacques Santini and our new management structure.

The Manchester United boss is quoted in The Mirror today insisting we could be the surprise package of next season.

Former French international manager Jacques has joined us as Head Coach alongside Sporting Director Frank Arnesen, first assistant coach Martin Jol and coach Dominique Cuperly.

Sir Alex said: "I think you'll see a really big improvement in Tottenham this season. I think they could do well because the new coaching structure they have in place is very impressive.

"Santini comes with a great CV and he has the experience to a good job there. And he's also got a great coaching structure there that will benefit the club.

"Martin Jol is a great general manager for them and Frank Arnesen is also a great appointment and can spot a player. Just look at the players he brought to PSV Eindhoven - Romario, Ronaldo and Van Nistelrooy.

"So I think Tottenham could be challenging up there for a European place."
