Tottenham have confirmed Michael Dawson has returned to the club in an ambassadorial role after retiring from playing.

Dawson made 324 appearances for Spurs after joining from Nottingham Forest in 2005. He left for Hull City in 2014 and eventually returned to Forest for the final spell of his career.

The Yorkshireman was a fan favourite at White Hart Lane as a result of his on-pitch commitment and his leadership skills – he was captain for a short time.

When paired with Ledley King, Dawson would often step up to an even higher level of performance, an achievement that earned him four senior England caps.

In the 2009/10 season, Dawson was arguably one of the leading centre-backs in the Premier League as he helped Tottenham qualify for the Champions League.

And now, at 37, he has decided to hang up his boots and return to north London to work for Spurs.

As an ambassador, Dawson is likely to have similar duties to King – the pair were photographed together as part of Dawson’s announcement.
