Tottenham Hotspur have a clean structure at the club at the moment, with Mauricio Pochettino and Jesus Perez in charge of the team selection and day-to-day training.

Daniel Levy takes charge over the running of the club, finances, and transfers, while head scout Steve Hitchen is obviously in charge of scouting potential new stars.

These four figures have worked in unison over the past few years to deliver great success at Spurs, including the club’s first-ever Champions League Final last season.

However, Tottenham have started the new campaign in rather poor fashion, losing three games already and only registering two wins out of eight in all competitions.

Pochettino has now implied that, despite the poor form, he and Daniel Levy still have a good working relationship, with the Chairman accompanying Poch, his wife, Perez, and Hitchin to the FIFA Best Awards this week.

This comes after Levy freed up the cash for Pochettino to break the club’s record transfer in the form of Tanguy Ndombele this summer.

Poch said (Football London): “We move on, from the summer we move on. We were together in Milan at the FIFA The Best awards. He came with me, Jesus, my wife and Steve Hitchen. It was a very nice time to spend together and talk about many things.

“If we are not in a good way, we don’t have a good relationship to spend a day together. There’s no point if you don’t have a good relationship. One thing is the responsibility to be here in front of you, be a manager, my responsibility, a professional responsibility for the club, the team and the fans. Another is my human relationship, my personal relationship. I can agree or not agree but that is not going to change my personal relationship. Never is it personal. Always it’s my ideas to try to share with the people and try to get the benefit of the club.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

This is nice to hear, but I get the impression that Poch is frustrated that more money was not made available in the summer through the sales of the likes of Christian Eriksen. It feels as if the squad overhaul was only half done.
