Jimmy Greaves: England and Tottenham big in the hospital


England, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, the great Jimmy Greaves, are currently receiving treatment at the hospital.

No one has scored more high-profile goals in English football than the 80-year-old, who was part of the 1966 World Cup triumphant team.

Greaves suffered a severe stroke in May 2015, which left him in a wheelchair.

In a statement Tuesday evening, Tottenham said, “We can confirm that our top scorer Jimmy Greaves is currently being treated at the hospital.

“We are in touch with his family and will provide new updates in due course.

“Everyone at the club sends best wishes to Jimmy and his family. “

Greaves, a free scorer, rose through the ranks at Chelsea, scoring 132 goals in 169 games before joining the Italian giant AC Milan.

The striker returned to England when he joined the Spurs for £ 99,999 in December 1961 and scored a record 266 goals in 379 competitive appearances for the North London club.

Greaves won two FA Cups and the Cup Winners’ Cup at White Hart Lane, before joining West Ham as the deceased, the great Martin Peters changed direction.

He scored 44 goals in 57 appearances for England, with an injury in the last group match of the 1966 World Cup allowing Sir Geoff Hurst the chance to come into the side.
