PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, April 2 (CANA)

Tottenham Hotspurs, one of England's most renowned football clubs, may play two matches in Trinidad in May, according to a report in the TRINIDAD GUARDIAN.

The GUARDIAN said that negotiations are now underway to have the 'Spurs' here for the formal opening of the 1983 Trinidad and Tobago Football League's (TTFL) season, Mucurapo.

Arthur Suite, chairman of the TTFL and one of the country's leading soccer promoters and two directors of ASL Properties Limited, have left for London to finalise arrangements for the visit of the 'Spurs'.

If plans materialise, Tottenham will play both matches against ASL Sports, Trinidad and Tobago's only fully professional football club.

Tottenham won the English FA Cup in 1981 and 1982. They boast of having Argentine World Cup stars Osvaldo Ardiles and Ricardo Villa in their team, as well as exciting players like Steve Archibald, Glenn Hoddle, Ray Clemence and Garth Crooks.
