He’ll also discuss the lows, which will include an in depth talk about the heart attack he suffered on his 61st birthday in 2018.

Speaking to the Bucks Free Press, Glenn said: “I’ve been to the Wycombe Swan before and I’m very much looking forward to returning.

“The last time I went was to see Paul Carrack in concert, so I can assure you that this will be a different night in Wycombe!

“There’s a lot of things to talk about when I go to the Wycombe Swan and I’m very excited about doing this tour.

“It’s something I’ve been thinking of doing for a while and we’ll talk about topics like scoring on my debut for England, which as an individual, was an incredible moment for me as it’s something you dream about when you’re a kid.

“Overall, it should be a good, relaxing night for everyone who comes along.”

Hoddle began his career with Tottenham, the team he supported as a boy, where he made his debut for the Lilywhites aged just 17.

He would stay at Spurs for 12 years where he scored 110 goals in 490 appearances, winning two FA Cups, a Charity Shield (which was shared with Aston Villa) and a UEFA Cup.

During this period, he was also included in six PFA Team of the Year awards, and was regarded as one of the best attacking midfielders of his generation.

He then left North London to join Monaco where he played in France for four years, before returning to England to join Swindon Town.

During his two-year stint with the Robins where he was player-manager, Hoddle got the club promoted to the Premier League.

He then finished his career with Chelsea, where he was also player-manager.

Following his retirement in 1995, he permanently managed England, Tottenham, Southampton and Wolves.

But since leaving the midlands club in 2006, he has been out of management and has focused on punditry.

Hoddle added: “Going abroad was a huge learning curve for me.

“When you have stayed at the same club for a long time, it’s never easy to leave, but I felt the time was right to leave Tottenham to achieve different challenges.

“It was a good experience.”
