Vinny Samways: Ossie’s Pivote

In part two of my absorbing conversation with Vinny Samways, we speak about the midfielder’s earlier days at his beloved Tottenham, not least his time spent under manager and club legend Ossie Ardiles, who Vinny considered to be ahead of his time. Vinny was the kind of player Ossie wanted the play to flow through, his ‘pivote’. There was even a call-up for Ossie’s testimonial match, when a teenage Vinny starred alongside a certain Diego Armando Maradona. An unforgettable experience.

We also cover two memorable giant-killing thrashings which Vinny was on the right side of, one against Real Madrid when at Las Palmas, and one against Barcelona when he was at Sevilla.
