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.
