Former Tottenham boss Martin Jol says he'll always feel a connection to the club.
Jol is proud of his time in charge of Spurs and the team they built.
"We had a great team, a young team. six or seven young internationals," said Jol, currently back in an advisory role at his home club, ADO Den Haag. “Aaron Lennon, we took him from Leeds for £1million, Michael Carrick was a snip from West Ham, Jermaine Jenas from Newcastle.
“We had different (types of) players, nice players, good professionals. We were in the top four for seven months (in 2005/06) and then we had that awful last game at West Ham, but we still had 65 points.
“Of course, Spurs did better after that, and I was so happy for them. They were a bit unlucky and it was so disappointing that they couldn't win a prize, and hopefully Jose can change that. The fans deserve it."
He also told the club's website: “I'm very happy. I'm a part of Spurs history, and that is a nice feeling. Of course, I was with Ajax and RKC (in Holland) and in Germany (Hamburg) and Al-Ahly (Egypt), that is probably the biggest club in the world, they've got 17 million fans! But Spurs... that was my favourite club and it will always play a part in my life. I always watch the games and hopefully I can soon come to a game at the new stadium."
