Zapsportz, a website Glenn Hoddle co-founded, has confirmed that he is willing to return to Tottenham Hotspur in a managerial capacity.

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker believes fellow Spurs great Glenn Hoddle should be the club's next permanent manager.
Lineker tweeted: "AVB has been sacked by Spurs. Would love to see Glenn Hoddle given another chance at this level. Has a brilliant football mind."
A 5-0 defeat to Liverpool at home plus a 6-0 defeat to Manchester City in the past month must have heavily factored in Levy's thinking to fire Andre Villas-Boas.
Jason Burt at The Telegraph wrote: "He [Villas-Boas] and Levy have never been, according to a source close to the Portuguese, a 'dynamic duo'. By the end the relationship between the pair was ever more remote; it was not a meeting of minds."
Chelsea fired Villas-Boas and won the UEFA Champions League, which was the ultimate indictment on how awful he was for the Blues' dressing room.
Villas-Boas may have lost the confidence of the Spurs dressing room.
Tottenham tweeted: "We can announce that Tim Sherwood, Chris Ramsey and Les Ferdinand will take charge of the First Team whilst the Club progresses discussions."
