Soccer-Spurs in my bones and blood, says hopeful Hoddle

(Adds details, quotes) LONDON, Dec 22 (Reuters) – Glenn Hoddle wants another crack at managing boyhood club Tottenham Hotspur despite being sacked as manager of the north London side 10 years ago. Bookmakers have installed caretaker manager Tim Sherwood as the early favourite but Hoddle has been direct in stating his interest in the job which was vacated by Andre Villas-Boas after their 5-0 mauling at home to Liverpool last weekend. “I supported Tottenham at eight years of age, I went there aged 12, left when I was 28, went back to manage – it’s in my blood and my bones. Yes, I would want to go back,” former England manager Hoddle told Britain’s Sky Sports on Sunday.
