Ex-technical performance director Steve Hitchen says Daniel Levy is ‘one of the best in the business’

Former Tottenham Hotspur technical performance director Steve Hitchen lauds Daniel Levy, per BBC Sport. He says the Tottenham Hotspur chairman is ‘one of the best’ in the business. Hitchen says,

Daniel takes a lot of criticism but he is one of the best to work with in terms of at least you know where you are. Even at the end it was good. He understood why I wanted to leave.

Hitchen further revealed that Daniel Levy is a fighter but he ensures both parties are happy by the end. So that he gets what he wants and so does the player. Steven Hitchen boasts a rich history working with top clubs, mostly in the recruitment business.

His rich past ties him with Liverpool, QPR and Derby. But he predominantly worked with Spurs for five years until 2022. Hitchen departed from North London after the arrival of Fabio Paritici. He spoke to the British media outlet in depth about Premier League recruitment.

A January window like never before

Steven Hitchen’s interview reminds us of the usually busy transfer window period. Speaking of which, the Premier League is nowhere close to their usual January spending this term and it is a combination of several reasons.

Football365 mentions Premier League clubs have spent less than £ 50 million this month, which is 5% of the total spend during the January 2023 window. FFP is the biggest culprit behind the same. The EPL clubs are walking a tightrope due to Financial Fair Play and Proft and Sustainability Rules.

The Premier League Profit and Sustainability Rules demand that ‘the amount of money any EPL team spends is permitted to lose over a specific time frame’. In short, as per the rules, clubs are allowed to make losses of some $133 million over the three-year reporting period.

The FFP is the same but prevails over all the UEFA clubs, while the PSR is limited to the EPL. The intent of both is the same, to prevent clubs from overspending in pursuit of success that could lead them to loss. However, the latter has further by-laws.
