Cash is the problem, so no JK Rowling creation
Levy and the club wanted Graham “Harry” Potter as our next manager and were prepared to offer him the job.
Yes, Tottenham have ended their interest in Harry Potter, the magician that got girls hearts throbbing, after it emerged that they would have to pay over £20 million in compensation and no wizard, according to Levy, is worth that. No matter how many powers he wants to bring to Levy’s rescue.
So, where does that leave Tottenham?
Well, Roberto Martinez is still in contention for the manager’s job, no wizard himself, and a substandard manager while in England, however, he has been doing a reasonable job with Belgium. Then there is Nuno Espirito Santo, both in contention after learning that they would have to part with £20million to land JK’s wizard and his merry backroom staff.
As we all know – Levy tells us enough times – that Tottenham’s financial issues are a result of the coronavirus pandemic, so the boss man has ruled out the Seagulls manager with cash at the club being tight.
As for Martinez, he will lead Belgium into their Euro 2020 round of 16 clash against Portugal (27th June). But nothing is as simple as one hopes where Levy is concerned. It was reported back in May by The Daily Mail that the former Wigan and Everton failure would be interested in the Tottenham job after this summer’s tournament comes to an end. It has also been leaked that Espirito Santo has agreed terms with Spurs and could be appointed by this evening. Such muddle and confusion (but Levy doesn’t do simple!).
So there you have it, Harry the Magician was Levy’s favourite, but, like always, money was the issue; £20million would be a big outlay for Levy to prise any manager away from their current club. However, a free agent such as Espirito Santo would be an attractive option from a monetary point of view.
With money dictating who we get to manage our team, nothing should surprise us. There are so many unemployed managers out there who will probably accept a hell of a lot less money than an excellent robust manager would do that that sort of person will wet Levy’s lips and make his eye’s sparkle.
All the best, Glenn
