Spurs in History - 23rd July

Peter Shreeves Returns as Manager

Tottenham Hotspur announced that Peter Shreeves would be promoted from chief coach to team manager, reporting to Terry Venables.

This would be Shreeves second spell in charge of the first team having been promoted to that position following the resignation of Keith Burkinshaw in 1984 when he had two seasons in charge before being sacked in 1986.

Terry Venables in his role as Chief Executive was planning to spend less time with the team and more on the running of the business side of the club.

Time was to prove that both decisions were wrong, as Shreeves held the role for only a year and Venables was later removed from his executive role by Alan Sugar.
