Many have been waiting for new Tottenham Hotspur head coach Andre Villas-Boas to appoint his second in command. Now, we finally have announcement from the club as to who will be replacing Kevin Bond as assistant head coach. It will be former Tottenham Hotspur player, and member of the Club Hall of Fame, Steffen Freund.

Freund made 120 appearance for Tottenham Hotspur, famously never scoring a goal, but endeared himself to the fans with his combination of work ethic and commitment to the club. Since retiring from football in 2004 Freund has held a number of coaching positions, primarily with the German National team.

Freund was, in 2007, appointed as assistant manager of Germany's Under-20 squad, only a few months later he joined countryman Berti Vogts in Nigeria as assistant manager. In May 2009 he finished his coaching badges and was appointed manager of the German U-16. A year later, Freund began managing the German U-17 team leading them to a runners up medal at the 2011 UEFA European U-17 Football Championship and a third place at the World Cup in Mexico.

Tottenham claim that this complete Villas-Boas's coaching team with goalkeeping coach Tony Parks being the only holdover from the previous regime.
