Described by the late, great Brian Clough as ‘Tottenham’s greatest ever player’, Dave Mackay was a fearless defender who galvanised all those around him and during his nine seasons at White Hart Lane he helped inspire the club to its most successful years of the modern era.
Signed from Scottish side Hearts for £32,000 in March 1959, the Edinburgh-born star quickly fund his feet in north London and with the attacking talents of Jimmy Greaves and Cliff Jones on hand to compliment his no-nonsense defending, Tottenham became a force to be reckoned with.
Mackay famously won the double – the first of the twentieth century – with the club in 1961 and went on to win the FA Cup in both 1962 and 1967, as well as the 1963 Cup Winners’ Cup after Atletico Madrid were beaten 5-1 in Rotterdam.
He finally left the club in 1958 when Clough persuaded him to sign for Derby County but Mackay’s place in Spurs history was already assured. He was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2002.
