With Andre Villas-Boas' job hanging in the balance at Tottenham Hotspur, David Ginola has stated he is in interested in taking over the north London club, according to The Daily Mail.

Spurs' last match was a 6-0 thrashing away to Manchester City, where AVB announced in the press conference that he was 'ashamed' of his players' performance.

Tottenham's next encounter is at home to Manchester United on Sunday, followed by an away tie against Fulham three days later.

But recently Tottenham legend David Ginola has stated he is interested in taking the job in the near future.

"I would love to manage Spurs one day. I have my UEFA A license in the next eight months," he said.

The Frenchman spent three years at White Hart Lane, signing for them in 1997 for £2.5million; playing 100 games and scoring 17 goals for the club. The midfielder still lives strongly in the hearts of Spurs fans.

At the start of the season AVB looked like a solid candidate to keep his job and guide Tottenham into the top four this season, but with the club spending £86 million on players, and the departure of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, Spurs have lacked the goalscoring touch.

Spurs have only been able to score nine goals this season in 12 league games, sitting ninth in the table and having not won a match in their last three encounters.

But Ginola went on to say he wants to manage the club that he knows and respects.

"If you become a manager one day, the obvious thing to do is to manage a club that you know, you like and you love," he concluded.
