The pair were part of Tim Sherwood's coaching team last season but the 45-year-old Englishman, who took over after Andre Villas-Boas was sacked, left the club at the end of the campaign after just six months in charge.

The duo were also wanted by Sherwood at West Brom, with the Baggies' offers to the coaches apparently a sticking point which saw the former Blackburn and Tottenham midfielder eventually reject the chance to return to Premier League management.

Mauricio Pochettino succeeded Sherwood as the new Spurs manager and the Argentine is setting up his own coaching team at White Hart Lane.

Pochettino was appointed on May 28 after an impressive stint at Southampton and has already taken assistant manager Jesus Perez, first team coach Miguel D'Agostino and goalkeeping coach Toni Jimenez to north London with him.

A statement on Tottenham's website said: "Les returned to the club in a coaching capacity in 2008, initially working with the strikers before linking up with Tim Sherwood and Chris Ramsey coordinating the Development Squad and most recently working with the first team. 

"As a player, Les scored 39 goals in 146 appearances in our colours between 1997 and 2003.

"Chris joined the Club in 2004, working within our Academy set-up, before running our Under-21 side and Development Squad in conjunction with Tim and Les, stepping up to a First Team coaching role in December.

"We should like to thank them for their contribution and wish them well for the future."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
