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).

All the morning tabloids carry the sad news about Willem Korsten's retirement from playing following hip surgery.

The Mirror quotes Gus Poyet on his departure from Chelsea, saying that the club stalled on offering him a new deal while seeking new signings to replace him.

Amid all the England coverage, Andy Cole is quoted as saying that Glenn would sign him for Spurs if he could. Glenn did not use Cole much during his spell as England boss, reasoning that he required too many chances to score goals at international level.

Cole said: Glenn said what he did and that was his opinion at the time. But people move on and ideas change over a period of time. Put it this way, if Glenn wanted to buy me now and United were willing to sell, it is a deal he would want to do.

"Would I sign for Glenn Hoddle? All I can say is I am very happy at Manchester United."
