A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left furious after a report claimed the club have no plans to commission a statue for Jimmy Greaves.
According to the Daily Mail, the north London side have not taken any steps to create a statue in memory of the legendary striker, who sadly passed away recently, aged 81.
The article adds that while there is a bust of legendary manager Bill Nicholson at their stadium, there are no statues of any former players or managers.
The news was shared online and it certainly didn’t go down well with many supporters.
Here’s what these Spurs fans had to say…
“Disgusting. @SpursOfficial, you really know how to alienate yourselves. Our greatest ever player and you won’t give him a statue… you’re so out of touch.”
“Embarrassing decision if true.”
“The board once again disrespecting our history and so-called “legacy fans”. Disgusting.”
“Typical Levy, that would mean actually spending money for no return.”
Should Jimmy Greaves get a statue at Spurs?
It certainly seems as if these Tottenham supporters hold him in the highest regard. A statue would seem a fitting tribute for a player who achieved so much with the club, but it seems as though that might be an idea for the future.
