HOULLIER DENIES SPURS MOVE
Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier has dismissed reports linking him with the vacant managerial post at Tottenham.
The French tactician has been under pressure due to Liverpool's stuttering start to the campaign and it has been claimed that Spurs have placed him under the microscope as a potential successor to Glenn Hoddle at White Hart Lane.
Houllier has admitted to being flattered by the reported interest, but says he has no intention of walking out on the Anfield giants.
"I am flattered, of course, if a club like Spurs are showing interest in me but I have heard nothing about this myself," Houllier is quoted as saying in The Sunday People.
"I have a contract with Liverpool and unless the club want to get rid of me then I expect to stay here and see this job through.
"When I took over in the summer of 1999 having been here since July 1998 we started rebuilding the team. I said then we needed a five-year plan minimum."
