On This Day In Spurs History: 3rd August
1952 – On this day in 1952, Ossie Ardiles was born. The midfielder had just won the World Cup with Argentina when he and Ricky Villa were signed by Spurs in 1978. In total Ardiles made 311 appearances for Tottenham and scored 25 goals, before leaving White Hart Lane in 1988.
Ardiles returned to the club for an ill-fated role as our manager in the nineties and though his time in charge of the club can only be viewed as a failure, Ardiles remains a much loved figure at Spurs.
