Keeper says Tottenham would be good for Villas-Boas

Carlo Cudicini: Would welcome Andre Villas-Boas, Rafa Benitez or Fabio Capello to Spurs

Tottenham goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini has admitted he would welcome the arrival of Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane.

Villas-Boas, 34, who was dismissed by Chelsea in March, has been linked with the vacant managerial position at Spurs ever since Harry Redknapp was sacked by chairman Daniel Levy earlier this month.

And the Italian believes the chance to take the post at the North London club would be too good an opportunity to turn down for the former Porto coach.

"I think it would be good for him," Cudicini told Sky Sports Italia. "I also think it would be a good opportunity for him to grow as a coach.

"Tottenham are a great team and he could learn a lot here."


However, the 38-year-old shot-stopper also claimed he would welcome the likes of former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez or ex-England head coach Fabio Capello to Spurs.

"(Rafa) Benitiez did very well in England as coach of Liverpool and he knows English football very well," said Cudicini.

"However, it's obvious that many names have been brought up because Tottenham are one of the most important Premier League clubs."

And Cudicini told Radio Kiss Kiss on Thursday: "(Fabio) Capello to Tottenham would make me very happy

"I played under him at AC Milan when I was young and he won so much with the senior team. He would bring experience and knowledge into the side."
