John Gorman resigned as assistant manager to Tony Adams' at Wycombe Wanderers yesterday.

Gorman, who acted as caretaker manager before Adams was appointed as the permanent successor to Lawrie Sanchez, worked alongside the former Arsenal and England defender for Wycombe's last two games, but he is keen to renew his partnership with Glenn Hoddle if and when the former Tottenham manager finds a new job in football.

Tottenham have said that their caretaker manager, David Pleat, had been misquoted in a report appearing in the Australian press which poked fun at Hoddle.

Pleat was quoted as saying of the applications to succeed Hoddle: "We've had everyone. Managers, agents, mothers, fathers, dustmen, cleaners, applying. To be fair, none of the above would probably do much worse than Glenn Hoddle."

But Spurs' website said the quote had been fabricated and was "blatantly and totally false".
