Spurs legend Hoddle happy working with academy

Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle admits it would take something special to lure him away from his new academy work.

Hoddle is now beginning to see graduates placed at top Spanish clubs and he told Sky Sports: "At the moment I wouldn't be able to do the two jobs. It's impossible.

"I've turned down probably 20-odd jobs over the last three years but it's not replacing management. I enjoyed management, every second of it, but this is something I wanted to do from way back when I was Chelsea manager and now in my life it's the time for me and I'm enjoying every minute of it. When you're changing people's lives, getting people back into football when they thought it was bypassing them, that's a wonderful feeling for all the coaching staff and everyone that works in the academy. That's more rewarding than medals really.

"Maybe an international job might come up that I can do the two once the academy is off and running in the next couple of years but there's a lot of hard work to be done still."
