Money, my son, lots of it, so join our club (Levy might have said to Conte).
EuroSport have revealed that Daniel Levy has told close colleagues that he has big plans for this summer and that news might tickle Antonia Conte.
As I have previously written, we are supposed to be very close to appointing the ex-Chelski man as our next manager. But Conte won’t rush into things and wants to know what transfer funds he will get and will it be enough to compete with the rest of the best. Any top manager wishing to go to another club wants that club to fully back him and be committed.
Eurosport have claimed that the former Inter boss is ‘on the verge of signing’ for us. But not just him, also Fabio Paratici, his mate; who will be (I believe) joining as a Director of Football.
It has also been reported that Levy has no interest in selling Kane this summer (whatever Kane wants, and he is tied to a long contract). Which will please Conte and Paratici. But their appointment won’t be the end of it, just the tip of the iceberg. I believe Levy has realised that his biggest mistakes in the past are not entirely giving his managers the funds to compete with the best, which is why we have fallen so far behind and down the league table. Therefore he will back Conte with the cash he wants to help push us up the Premier League table and to success (which means, I hope, trophies).
On top of all that, Eurosport conjectures that Levy might have attained an agreement over the stadium’s naming rights.
Do you remember that old TV advert for Club biscuits? “If you want a lot of chocolate on your biscuit then join our club”? Maybe Conte is looking for a lot of chocolate on his biscuit 🙂
Levy has said or hinted that they (in other words, the board and himself) haven’t entirely focused on the team because of the building of the new stadium and, of course, COVID-19. If that is true and Levy has fully woken up to what it is to be a top 6 club and realises his mistakes, then I say hats off to him. But, and a big “but,” the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
We are supposed to be a big club, so finishing 7th and, with our fingers tips just managing to hold on to a place in Europe, even though that place is in the new competition for failed teams who couldn’t make the Europa League, it isn’t good enough for a team like us. But if this is a start of us climbing back up that ladder, thus in the process leaving the likes of the Gooners, the Spammers and the rest well behind, then I am all for it (but then again, why wouldn’t I be?).
And if all these speculations are true (and Conte would know if it is true or not), then I can’t see any reason why he wouldn’t join us. But time will tell…, and the clock is ticking.
Hi all, if you are a Spurs supporter like me, you will be interested in the book “My Eyes Have Seen the Glory”. As an avid reader of Spurs history, myself, this book stands on the shoulders of them all. It has interviews with 40 great Spurs legends of WHL. It is written by Toby Benjamin & Alan Fisher. And it has a forward by the great Gary Mabbutt MBE. Read my book review below. Whether au fait with our history or not, this book is a must to any Spurs fans. To read more, click below.
