Former France international David Ginola has claimed he would love to manage Tottenham Hotspur in the future as talk centres around possible replacements for Andre Villas-Boas.

Spurs are currently ninth in the table but are just two points off a top-four spot. The side were thrashed 6-0 by Manchester City at the weekend, leading many to speculate that Daniel Levy might sack Villas-Boas.

And with rumours starting that there are already candidates waiting in the wings to take over from the former Porto and Chelsea man, Ginola says he hopes to move into management with Tottenham in his sights.

"I would love to manage Spurs one day," he told Talksport. "I will have my UEFA A license in the next eight months. If you become a manager one day the obvious thing is to manage a club you like, you know and you love."

Ginola featured for Tottenham between 1997-200 as well as playing for a host of clubs in France and England throughout his 17 year career.

The side already have a former Spurs' star in their coaching ranks with Steffen Freund taking the assistant's job under Villas-Boas.

Ginola has been a regular face in the media since his retirement in 2002 but is now keen to get back into the game. Tottenham are currently aiming to qualify for the Champions League and get into the mix for trophies, and their sky-high spending last summer reflects such ambitions.

But whether Villas-Boas believes that Ginola will provide positive assistance at Tottenham in the future remains to be seen.
