El Tel’s Legacy, a memorial to football champion Terry Venables

26. 11. 2023 | Natalie Bezděková

Terry Venables, a prominent football manager and former player, has left the world at the age of eighty. His rich career included not only success on the playing field but also outstanding coaching feats. His family has announced his death and issued a statement asking for respect for his privacy at this difficult time.

Venables, nicknamed El Tel, earned respect not only as a footballer but also as a coach. During his playing career, he played for clubs such as Chelsea and Crystal Palace, but had his greatest success with Tottenham. He won the FA Cup with Spurs in the 1966/1967 season, and later as a coach in 1991.

However, his coaching successes were not limited to the English scene. He led Barcelona, with whom he won the Spanish League and the domestic cup. His most memorable moment was also guiding the England national team to the semi-finals of the 1996 European Championship. This event was considered a historic moment for English football.

Tottenham, a club that was particularly significant to Venables, expressed deep regret at his loss. Players will take the field for the next match against Aston Villa with black armbands around their arms, and fans are planning a minute’s applause in his memory.

Venables was not only a successful athlete and coach, but also a popular personality, which is confirmed by the words of his family. He certainly left a distinctive mark on the world of football, and his legacy will live on among fans and in the world of sporting success.
