Former Spurs and England manager set for sensational return to White Hart Lane?

Former Tottenham and England manager Terry Venables has today be linked with a shock return to White Hart Lane. Venables is seen, by many at the North London club, as a perfect replacement for under-pressure Sporting Director Damien Comolli.

Venables, 65, spent three years at Spurs as a player making 115 appearances in the process, winning the FA Cup once. He also spent four years in charge of the club, leading the club to a successful FA Cup campaign in 1991. Comolli has come under increasing pressure lately after the club failed to fully replace Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov in the summer transfer window.

It is understood that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is keen to get rid of Comolli before the January transfer window, leaving the way clear for a possible return for Venables. Could 'El Tel' really be on his way back to Spurs? I personally can't see it happening although stranger things have happened.

Venables has been out of a job since November 2007 after being sacked as assistant manager of England. Venables was also recently linked with a move to Premier League side Newcastle United after owner Mike Ashley reportedly offered him the job, however Venables rejected the opportunity, claiming there was "too much uncertainty at the club".
