Tottenham can give Arsenal a “kick in the teeth” by winning Yaya Touré’s “brilliant” appointment as manager.
That’s according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly reports club news on his Lily rose social media channels.
On December 1, Sky Sports reported that Touré, 38, was working alongside Spurs academy coaches Dean Rastrick and Chris Powell on an informal basis to gain experience.
The former Manchester City midfielder is not employed by the club as he is gaining experience working for his coach badges.
However, the Evening Standard (December 1) claimed Touré was “open” to accepting a formal role at the club if the opportunity presented itself.
Wenham says Touré joining the coaching staff would be a “brilliant” decision.
“Tottenham is always looking for good coaches”, Wenham said Football initiate correspondent Ben Wild.
“Touré brings a wealth of experience, he’s also a series winner.
“He played at the highest level for Manchester City and Barcelona. I am completely open to its membership.
“He lives in London so it works. It would also be a kick in the teeth for Arsenal given the ties to his brother.
“For young players, who better to learn from? It would be a real coup.
“If we could accommodate another coach, I would rather it be Yaya than someone who doesn’t have his background in the game.
“It would be a brilliant gesture.”
Touré won three Premier League championships during his time with Man City.
He also won the Champions League with Barcelona.
