Christian Gross Came to Spurs in November 1997 after success with Grasshoppers but never convinced the fans during his nine months in charge and was sacked after his side lost two of their first three games of the 1999/00 season.
Gross arrived at his first
press conference from Heathrow airport brandishing a
London Underground ticket and claiming: “I want this to
become my ticket to the dreams.”
Returned to his native Switzerland to take charge of FC Basel where he has successfully rebuilt his reputation.
