Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Glen Hoddle claims that Andre Villas-Boas is a "risk" appointment for Spurs.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Glen Hoddle believes that the club's appointment of Andre Villas-Boas is "a slight risk".

Villas-Boas – sacked by Chelsea in February – was confirmed as Spurs' new boss on Tuesday, but Hoddle has admitted his surprise.

"I'm surprised. I did not think that is the way Spurs would go. It's more than a slight risk because of the way things didn't work out at Chelsea," he told reporters.

"I thought it might have been better for him to go and reinvent himself elsewhere before he had another crack at English football."

Hoddle helmed Tottenham for two years in 2001.
