Tom Allnutt reveals why Tottenham honcho Daniel Levy will reject Roberto de Zerbi.

Tom Allnutt says Daniel Levy will not go for Roberto de Zerbi due to his fiery personality

Speaking to the Tottenham Way podcast, Tom Allnutt has claimed that Daniel Levy might not choose Roberto de Zerbi as the new manager due to his fiery personality.

In recent weeks, Tottenham Hotspur has found itself in the midst of rumours linking them to a potential move for Brighton and Hove Albion manager Roberto de Zerbi. The Italian tactician has worked wonders with the Seagulls, with the team currently vying for a place in European competition next season.

Under de Zerbi’s guidance, Brighton has showcased an exhilarating brand of attacking football, catapulting their manager into the spotlight as one of the season’s standout managerial talents.

However, according to Tom Allnutt from The Times, it appears that Roberto de Zerbi‘s fiery personality may not align with the vision of Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy. His history with our club on the touchline hasn’t been great.

Allnutt explains that while the Italian manager is undoubtedly talented, there are reservations within the Spurs hierarchy regarding his temperament and whether it would be a good fit for the club.

Here is what the Times reporter had to say about De Zerbi and his chances of ending up at Tottenham

“The way he has developed this Brighton team, he is a hugely talented manager, but on a serious point, there are some reservations at Spurs about his fiery personality, but my point of view is why not?”

The memory of former Tottenham manager Antonio Conte’s tumultuous reign still lingers, which ended with a public outburst questioning player commitment and the club’s ambition. As a result, Levy is understandably hesitant about appointing another manager with a strong personality, as it brings with it the potential for similar disruptions.

In light of Conte’s departure, Tottenham finds itself in dire need of a quality replacement. This season has been one filled with disappointment, and the club is yearning to send a message of ambition and intent.
