The Portuguese was given his marching orders last week in the wake of the north London club’s stunning 5-0 home thrashing by rivals Liverpool in the Premier League, with Tottenham now currently languishing way down in seventh place in the top-flight standings after 17 games of the campaign.
However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has already been heavily linked with a number of top-class managers since Villas-Boas’s departure from the capital, including the likes of Ronald Koeman, Louis van Gaal, Guus Hiddink, Michael Laudrup, Frank de Boer and Fabio Capello.

“Tottenham is a club I really appreciate a lot and I have great admiration for,” said Queiroz.
“One of my coaching dreams is to get back to English football.”
