Ossie Ardiles will forever be a part of Tottenham Hotspur folklore following his arrival in North London alongside compatriot Ricky Villa after the pair had starred in Argentina's World Cup triumph in 1978.
Superbly skilful and determined, Ardiles immediately forged a formidable midfield duo with Glenn Hoddle as the Club lifted two FA Cups in the early-1980s and the UEFA Cup in 1984.
Ossie’s key role in this successful era for the Club is signified by the ever-popular theme song to the 1981 FA Cup triumph – ‘Ossie’s Dream’ – in which the player remarks wanting to win ‘the Cup for Tottingham’ in his unmistakeable broken English. The Chas n Dave hit is still sung by Spurs fans across the globe to this day.
Following his time as a player at Spurs, Ossie had spells at Blackburn Rovers, Queens Park Rangers and Swindon Town, moving into management with the latter in 1989.
He then took charge of Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion before returning to N17 as manager between 1993 and 1994.
Ossie’s managerial career encompassed clubs in eight different countries, while he continues as an Ambassador for his beloved Tottenham Hotspur, engaging with fans at home and abroad, as well as supporting the Club’s commercial partnerships and charitable work.
