Ex-Spurs star Anderton says AVB was always wrong appointment

Former Tottenham star Darren Anderton says his old club should never have given the manager's job to Andre Villas-Boas. AVB was shown the door by Spurs last week.

Anderton told Absolute Radio: "AVB wasn't the man. So you know when you look at it, that means they made a mistake getting him in, in the first place. When you look at where the team are at the moment, they're in seventh place.

"They're not a million miles away, but it's the manner of which they've played this year. It's been disappointing to watch, been a little bit frustrating and a little bit dull at times. Whether it's the correct decision, you know it's difficult to say.

"I think I've been disappointed with the way they've played this year but for me again it's not a surprise with the way football management is now."
