The Telegraph have now claimed that one of the points of differences between Jose Mourinho and Daniel Levy that led to the Portuguese coach’s sacking was their varied views on what the club’s strategy should be in this summer’s transfer window.
The report claims that Mourinho wanted to sanction the sales of both Dele Alli and Harry Winks. However, it is said that Levy was not keen on selling the two midfielders and wanted to see both have a run in the side.
The report explains that Mourinho’s decision to freeze out Dele Alli for large parts of the season did not go down with Levy while the Spurs chairman also did not appreciate the former Tottenham boss’ refusal to select Gareth Bale.
It is said that, while Levy did not mind the personal criticism Mourinho aimed at some players, he reacted badly to instances that he perceived to be the devaluing of the club’s assets in the eyes of the wider market.
