Product Description


On 10 July 1978, just 15 days after Argentina's triumph over Holland in the World Cup, Spurs manager Keith Burkinshaw pulled off a sensational coup for his Tottenham Hotspur side when he signed two of Argentina's top players - Osvaldo 'Ossie' Ardiles and Ricardo Villa. In signing the two brilliant midfielders, Burkinshaw significantly strengthened his newly-promoted side. Ardiles, the small, wiry midfielder had been one of the most influential players in the Argentinian side and immediately made his impact felt at White Hart Lane. During his four years with the club he became something of a cult hero along with his compatriot Ricardo Villa and team-mate Glen Hoddle, and watched the team go from strength to strength. Ardiles played in that spectacular FA Cup replay victory at Wembley against Manchester City, in 1981, which included Villa's memorable goal. It was a golden moment which unfortunately was to evade both men the following year when events in the Falklands impacted on both the semi-final and the final of the FA Cup. After being booed by Leicester fans throughout the semi-final, Ardiles left to play in the World Cup, but before doing so, he engineered a magnificent goal which ensured Spurs a place in the final, but he never returned to White Hart Lane. Ricardo Villa was forced to watch the final on television as it was considered to be too insensitive to allow him to play, at a time when the British wasTask Force was approaching the Falklands.
