Jesus Perez also paid tribute to Bamber on Twitter after expressing his sympathy and describing his former colleague as ‘the greatest smile among the Spurs family’.

The Evening Standard reported in February that Bamber, who had been working in a consultancy role was due to leave the club next month when his contract expired.

Todd Kline, formerly of the Miami Dolphins was earlier this year appointed as the club’s first chief commercial officer with the aim of looking to secure a financially-lucrative naming rights partner for the new stadium.
