Jacques Santini

Football News

Tottenham's capture of France manager Jacques Santini appeared to be a significant coup for the club when he arrived at White Hart Lane in 2004, but things soon went rather poire-shaped.

Santini lasted only 13 days at the helm before his ties with Spurs were severed, with the ex-Lyon boss initially citing personal problems as the reason for his departure.

It was reported, however, that Santini quit his position after a number of rows with Frank Arnesen, the sporting director - serving as another key example of that role never quite catching on in English football.

Santini has held only one position since he left Tottenham, but was sacked after only a year at Auxerre following a series of clashes with the club's vice-president, Guy Roux.
