Description

The World Cup winning legend Osvaldo Ardiles will be heading to Wolverhampton for his first ever meet and greet event in the Black Country.

A competitive and skilled midfielder, Ardiles became a cult hero in England, along with Glenn Hoddle and compatriot Ricky Villa as a player for Tottenham Hotspur. He left England for a period on loan as a result of the outbreak of the Falklands War in 1982, thus missing most of the 1982–83 English season.

After retirement, Ardiles began his management career in England, coaching Swindon Town, Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion, before returning to Tottenham to become the first Premier League manager from outside the British Isles. As manager of Spurs in the mid-1990s, he played several matches utilizing a formation that had five forwards, a formation that hadn't been used in English football since the 1950s. During his career, Ardiles has also coached in Mexico, Croatia, Japan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Paraguay and his native Argentina.

This special night with Ossie gives you the chance to see and get close to the peoples favourite little football wizard and listen to his personal story - live and unscripted.

On the night we will be raising funds for the charities Legacy 4 Lucy and Breast Cancer Now. The charities are set up with the mission that together with your incredible support each year, it gets them closer and on target to their goal that by 2050, everybody who develops breast cancer will live - and live well. The founder of Legacy 4 Lucy, Jason Guy, who started the charity after he lost his wife Lucy to breast cancer, said; “Breast cancer is an extremely unfair battle. I don’t look at it in the sense that Lucy has lost her fight. She hasn’t died in vain. I am going to do all I can to raise funds and awareness for the charity.”

Moving forward, Jason is passionate about supporting breast cancer research and intends to carry on with Lucy’s strength and courage as they seek to hit their £200,000 fundraising target. Activities have so far included sponsored cycle rides, golf days, sport dinners, coffee mornings and a charity football match. Proceeds raised on the evening will go to the above mentioned charities.
