United Arab Emirates coach Roy Hodgson has admitted he is interested in becoming the new manager of Tottenham.

“Spurs are a big club,” Hodgson told the BBC.

“It’s one of England’s top clubs and if they decide that I’m the man for them then I would be very flattered.

“At the moment it’s only speculation because I have had no contact.”

“It’s a bit like asking me if I was interested in coaching Juventus or Barcelona.”
