‘Embarrassing to be honest’ – Some Spurs fans react to Levy’s stance on selling players

Daniel Levy has admitted in an interview with the Evening Standard that he is not scared to sell the players who are nearing the end of their contract at Tottenham to their Premier League rivals.

Whilst the Spurs chairman didn’t name any one member of Jose Mourinho’s squad by name, there has been plenty of speculation regarding midfielder Christian Eriksen’s future with reports suggested that the Danish international has rejected all of Tottenham’s contract offers to date (Evening Standard).

His current contract with the club runs out at the end of the current campaign and will be able to move on a free transfer next summer if Spurs fail to sell him next month.

The former Ajax man has been linked with a move to Manchester United in recent weeks (90 min).

Levy’s insistence that he will be willing to do business with Tottenham’s rivals, didn’t sit well with some Spurs fans who questioned if the Tottenham chairman had learnt anything from his previous mistakes.

While Levy obviously wants to get the best deal possible for the club, strengthening the likes of Manchester United will be a mistake. It is clear that Eriksen himself wants to go to Spain. So in an ideal world, Madrid will come in with a bid for him in January. If they don’t then I can certainly see us selling him to a Premier League rival.

  1. The sooner ENIC get out the better.We are going nowhere as far as football is concerned,the obsession with the stadium means that investment in players will be severely limited which in turn will force players like Son Alli and Kane will be off to join clubs with ambition and not just mid table no hopers..The Levy motto “Minimum Investment Maximum Profit.To say that we cannot compete with the others, just look at Liverpool’s investment in their goalkeeper and centre back and the return they achieved in their last seasons cash returns.,ie to dare is to do.
