Daniel Levy dismisses notion Tottenham Hotspur do not back managers

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has dismissed the notion that the North London side do not back managers in the transfer window.

Over the last few years, the feeling around the club has been one of disappointment with regard to the hierarchy’s decision-making. Antonio Conte was the latest in the line of managers who was unable to turn around our fortunes.

Speaking to the media via transfer guru Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Levy feels it would be harsh to criticise Spurs for their business dealings. The 61-year-old believes certain players have not lived up to the expectations.

“The notion that Tottenham haven’t backed certain managers is incorrect. We’re currently paying the price where some of the acquisitions have not turned out to be as we hoped.”

Tottenham are one of the biggest teams in the English top flight. However, we have now gone 14 years without getting our hands on any major silverware.

Levy’s management has seen us be inconsistent. Under Mauricio Pochettino, the North London side looked to be building something. But since the Argentine’s departure, we have seemingly gone backwards.

The likes of Jose Mourinho and Nuno Espirito Santo were given the reins at the Lilywhites. Unfortunately, they were unable to do much during their time in Spurs’ dugout. Recruitment of quality new players seemed to be a sticking point.

After we secured a place in the Champions League with Conte’s arrival, the hierarchy seemed to be a bit more receptive to the idea of investing in the squad. To that end, last summer, we added six new faces to the squad. Pedro Porro and Arnaut Danjuma also joined us in January.

Unfortunately, the likes of Richarlison, Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic, Clement Lenglet and Djed Spence have not had the required impact. Therefore, Levy is correct in pointing out that some of the stars have not performed well.

However, there is evidently a need to revamp our squad due to the years of neglect from our chairman in building a competitive team. Hopefully, the 61-year-old will change his ways with Ange Postecoglou now in charge.
