Anthony Hudson is tipped for big things in management.

Hudson has gone to Ajax, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Tottenham to build up his CV and could be the youngest manager to earn a UEFA Pro Licence.

That CV already has two things that stand out. At only 30, Hudson makes Andre Villas-Boas seem old and he has already had a taste of management at Newport County.

But the list of references - including Harry Redknapp, invited by Sir Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho and Brendan Rodgers to spend time with them while taking his Pro coaching licence - also means that he is well connected.

Hudson is also the son of former Chelsea, Stoke, Arsenal and England star Alan Hudson and therefore he has great support from within the game.

Redknapp, who has likened Hudson to being a new Mourinho, has offered to bring him on board at Tottenham to work with the developmental squad, says the Mirror.
