LONDON (AFP) - Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Glenn Hoddle would be interested in returning to the club to succeed the sacked Andre Villas-Boas, a source close to him revealed on Tuesday.

Technical coordinator Tim Sherwood, a former Spurs midfielder, has been placed in interim charge of first-team affairs following Villas-Boas's dismissal as manager on Monday.

Hoddle, 56, has not worked as a manager since leaving Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2006, but he appears eager to return to Spurs, where he made his name as a player before becoming coach in 2001.

A story published on a website co-founded by Hoddle on Tuesday said: " understands that Hoddle will certainly help if the club makes an approach."
