Revealed: Daniel Levy not involved in Paulo Fonseca decision

According to Daily Star, it has been revealed that Daniel Levy had no part to play in not appointing Paulo Fonseca as the new manager of Tottenham. The former Roma manager was very close to taking up the job but the deal collapsed at the very last minute.

Tottenham find themselves in a ridiculous mess. It was back in April when Jose Mourinho was relieved of his duties as Ryan Mason saw out the remainder of the season. Since then, Spurs have been linked to a host of managers.

However, they have failed to attract none. Over the last week, it finally seemed Spurs had found their new boss when talks reached their final stages with Paulo Fonseca. The deal was so close to completion that Fonseca had also met Spurs’ managing director Fabio Paratici.

Nonetheless, the deal collapsed spectacularly. It has now been revealed that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was not against Fonseca’s appointment and was not the reason behind the club pulling the plug on it. It seems as if Paratici and Steve Hitchens were the main figures to do so.

It was rather surprising to learn that Levy had no part in this. One would expect the chairman to be taking these decisions. Spurs will now have to move on from that and try to find another suitable candidate to solve fill the vacancy.
