KAREN HILLS has admitted she was “the end line was a sad moment” after she ruthlessly axed midway through November.

The surprise sacking of head coaching duo, Hills and Juan Amoros, came just two months after the club renewed their contracts until 2022.

The North London outfit had failed to pick up a win before the pair were axed, leaving them second from bottom in the table at the time.

Hills told the BBC: “The end line was a sad moment,

“We were in a better place as a team and a coaching team than we were last year, so the expectation was, ‘What can we do next?’

“We were a big-name club but we were building for something incredible and it wasn’t going to happen overnight.

“We organically grew it. It was a process that we were working through. Our work showed that throughout the years.”

The night before Hills and Amoros’ departure, they lost to rivals Arsenal on penalties in the League Cup after drawing 2-2 in normal time.

World Cup-winning striker Alex Morgan missed the decisive spot-kick.

Hills added: “Alex Morgan nearly scored the winner for us in that game.

“That moment is one that will bring closure to my Spurs career and I’m very proud of what we have achieved.


“I can only see [the women’s game] excelling. I want to be a part of that. There are options to explore so I’m keeping them open.”

Phil Neville’s former No2, Rehanne Skinner, has since taken charge of the club.

She toasted Spurs’ first win of the season on her debut and a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa in the following game.

Tottenham have recently allowed the women’s side to train at the men’s Hotspur Way base on a full-time basis for the first time ever.
