Spurs reached the Champions League final for the first time in the club’s history on Wednesday evening – and Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle couldn’t contain his delight while covering the match for BT Sport.
“I’ve never been happier,” he said after Tottenham had bested Ajax in Amsterdam. “I’m so glad that I’m still around to see this, I’ve got to say. I’ve been a Spurs fan from when I was eight years of age.”
Check out the video from BT, which features the highlights from the match and emotional commentary from Hoddle, Ferdinand and Gary Lineker.
Hoddle played for Tottenham for 12 years during his career (1975-87) and managed the team for two (2001-2003). He wasn’t the only one feeling the weight of the occasion: Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was in tears on the pitch, celebrating with his team in front of the travelling fans.
