Spurs in History - 15th November
15th November, 1994
Gerry Francis appointed as Manager.
Following the sacking of Ossie Ardiles, Alan Sugar used the break for the Internationals to search for a replacement. Steve Perryman had been put in temporary charge for the next game and as usual there was considerable press speculation as to who would be appointed.
Gerry Francis had resigned as manager of Queen’s Park Rangers on a point of principle when the Board tried to appoint Rodney Marsh as Chief Executive but failed to tell Francis.
Following discussions Spurs announced his appointment along with his own coaching staff meaning that Perryman would be leaving White Hart Lane. Francis was the third Spurs' manager in two years.
