My Spurs life in pictures - Ossie Ardiles

Sat 17 November 2018, 10:37|Tottenham Hotspur

It's now just over 40 years since Spurs 'scooped the world' by signing two members of Argentina's 1978 World Cup-winning squad - Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa.

How the pair made their mark!

Ricky famously scored his solo goal in the 1981 FA Cup Final replay at Wembley, helping make 'Ossie's Dream' come true by landing the trophy - 'Ossie's Dream' the title of the Chas & Dave track that will forever be linked to the midfield maestro.

One of our all-time greats, Ossie went on to make 311 appearances and score 25 goals between 1978-1988, helping us reach the final of the 1982 FA Cup (he didn't play in the final) and lift the UEFA Cup in 1984.

Capped 53 times by Argentina, Ossie moved into management at the end of his playing career, initially as player/manager at Swindon before spells at Newcastle and West Brom and then a return to Spurs in 1993. He later had success in Japan, where he won the J-League, Emperor's Cup and Nabisco Cup.

Now a Club Ambassador, Ossie has represented the Club in Asia, Australia and America and is as popular as ever as a matchday host.
