The Evening Standard have revealed that Daniel Levy wants to bring in a new manager who is ready to work with the club’s transfer committee on incomings and outgoings.
Spurs have not had a director of football since the club parted ways with Franco Baldini back in 2015.
However, some sources have suggested that Levy is now also looking to appoint a sporting director along with a new head coach.
Some reports have suggested that Mourinho did not always see eye-to-eye with Levy on some transfer decisions, including the club’s decision to hold on to Dele Alli.
If the Evening Standard are to be believed, it seems as though the Spurs chairman wants to ensure that the club do not face the same problem with the Portuguese coach’s successor.
The report explains that Levy is looking for a manager who has a progressive style of play with a focus on bringing through younger talent.
He would also want the new head coach to work well with the transfer committee instead of having full say on who comes in and out.

Barring a few managers around the world, most do not have complete control over their club’s transfer decisions. It goes without saying that the new Spurs head coach has to be ready to work with the transfer committee to identify targets.
Perhaps someone with Mourinho’s experience and standing might have been less inclined to make some concessions to the club’s transfer committee while identifying targets.
That might convince Levy to go for someone like Potter, who is more of a training field coach and unlikely to make major demands.
