Report explains why Daniel Levy feels he must back Conte in January window

The Guardian have revealed that Daniel Levy feels that he must back Antonio Conte this month after Spurs fans voiced their discontent recently.

Much to the consternation of many Spurs fans, The Athletic reported a few weeks ago that some sources close to key figures at Spurs are now less optimistic that Conte will sign a new contract.

The report explained that Levy had always been clear with Conte that there will only be a limited amount of money to spend and the report added that the Italian might be putting pressure on the Spurs chairman to loosen his purse strings, knowing the leverage he has.

The Daily Mail subsequently claimed on December 22 that Levy is comfortable with the situation’ as contract talks with the Italian continue.

Some Tottenham fans have certainly made their feelings clear recently about the club’s hierarchy recently, with ‘Levy out’ chants being heard in the matches against Aston Villa and Crystal Palace.

The Guardian have now claimed that the Tottenham chairman is ‘coming under pressure’ from the club’s frustrated fan base and that he is losing the popularity contest with Conte. 

It is said that Levy thus feels that he has no recourse but to back the Spurs head coach during the current transfer window.

The one thing we know about Levy is that he is hard-nosed and stubborn. He is certainly not the type of character to change his plans based on what some fans are chanting at the stadium. Having said that, I fully expect Conte to be backed this month as the Spurs chairman would not want to lose the Italian.
