Tottenham have no plans to commission a statue for Jimmy Greaves

Tottenham have no plans to change their policy on statues, amid pleas from fans for the club to produce a lasting memorial for Jimmy Greaves.

Unlike many of their Premier League rivals, Spurs have no statues of former players around the new stadium at White Hart Lane and do not intend to commission any in the near future. 

There is a bust of legendary manager Bill Nicholson but they prefer to celebrate their illustrious history with various living legends who act as ambassadors.

They will soon open the doors to a museum and archive, a new venture delayed by the pandemic, in which there will be tributes to heroes such as Greaves, who died on Sunday at the age of 81.

Greaves scored 266 goals in 379 games for Tottenham, a record still standing by some distance more than half a century after his retirement. England captain Harry Kane is the closest to his total, on 223. 

Greaves also won the FA Cup twice and the European Cup-Winners’ Cup at Spurs, who held a minute’s applause in his honour ahead of Sunday’s game against Chelsea, the club where he started his career.

His image beamed out from the screens at the stadium, clips of his goals were shown and former team-mates shared their memories in pitchside interviews at half-time.

The club released a stirring video of his nine years at the club on social media on Monday along with the caption: ‘Our greatest ever player. A true legend, never forgotten.’

But a number of supporters are demanding a statue or a stand named in his honour. One of the first replies on Twitter read: ‘This man was a legend of this club and deserves both a statue and a stand named after him at the ground. Make it happen.’

Another post read: ‘Statues of him, Bill Nicholson and Glenn Hoddle outside the stadium? Why it hasn’t been done yet is beyond me’.

It is a view consistent with much of the correspondence shared with Sportsmail during a campaign for Greaves to be honoured.
