Noel Whelan has described Tottenham’s managerial situation as ‘an absolute shambles’ and believes that Daniel Levy can ill afford to let it drag on any longer.
Tottenham have held talks with a whole host of candidates over the managerial vacancy and despite it being more than two months since Jose Mourinho’s sacking, we appear to be no closer to finding out who his successor is likely to be.
The public manner in which the managerial pursuit has played out has certainly not endeared the club’s ownership to the fan base, with many on social media expressing their frustration at what is going on.
With not long to go until pre-season begins, Levy and the club’s new managing director of football, Fabio Paratici, do not have much time to get their house in order, with the squad looking in need of a significant rebuild.
Whelan has warned Tottenham’s ownership that they cannot risk tarnishing their reputation any further after the European Super League debacle.
When asked if Spurs fans’ trust in Levy has been eroded, the former Leeds striker told Football Insider: “I think that goes for everyone in ‘the big six’.
“The way they did that, the sneaky way. All the emails and everything. It hurt every single fan at every one of those clubs.
“I think an element of trust has gone. We’ve seen that at Manchester United with the protests. Look at Arsenal now, they want to get rid of their owners.
“They want the legends and that consortium. That, to me, is a kick in the face, a stab in the back for the fans.
“It’s like they don’t matter. They are the heartbeat of any club. It must hurt that their club looks like an absolute shambles.
“You need a manager in as soon as possible to answer these questions, they are miles off.”
