There was surprise in north London today when Tottenham Hotspur Chairman Daniel Levy unveiled North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un as the Club's new manager.
"This appointment of a supreme manager is the start of a bright new chapter for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club." Levy said in a hastily convened press conference this evening. He continued, "I personally saw no more suitable candidate, in Kim we have now have a ruthless, fearless head coach who I am sure will bring the discipline that has been lacking into the team and shore up our defence through the addition of top North Korean imports."
Kim Jong-un, who has also been named as Club Captain and starting Number 9, is only recorded as playing football once before in a 47-0 victory over the North Korean National team, where he himself scored 46 of the goals, with the 47th going to his recently executed uncle Chang Song-thaek.
In a bar close to White Hart Lane, Spurs supporters were philosophical about the new appointment, with one fan remarking, "I can put up with his questionable human rights record, provided he stops us using that bloody high-line defence. Though some machine-gun nests in the 18-yard box might just make it a good idea."
Another fan, who did not wish to be named, was more positive about the appointment of the 30 year old, "Well, he can't do any worse than Soldado up front." He said.
