Former Tottenham boss David Pleat says Ossie Ardiles remains the greatest Argentine to play in England.
But Pleat told the Daily Star Sunday: “To me, Ossie will always be the greatest Argentine footballer ever to play on those shores. He was a great player, a great thinker.
“Ossie was perpetual motion. He always gave the ball early and was a very clever thinker, like Alan Ball before him.
“He rarely got caught in possession and was a very clever man.
“When I managed Luton the players would go to bed early before a game.
“But at Spurs Ossie and the other players would stay up and play chess. Yes, I had a bright group, Ossie being one of them.
“Despite the baggage, though, Tevez is up there as a player. He has brought a lot of fun and excitement to our game.”
