Former Crystal Palace and Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has suggested that Tottenham Hotspur were never in for Olivier Giroud.
The French striker was heavily linked with a move to North London earlier today with The Sun claiming that Chelsea would have let the player depart if they had been able to secure the signature of Napoli’s Dries Mertens.
Warnock, who was appearing on Sky Sports News’ transfer deadline day how claimed that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is not naive enough to outlay money on a 33-year-old whilst casting his doubts over if a deal was ever on in the first place.
The 71-year-old expressed his sympathy towards Giroud, who has struggled for first team football this season ahead of the European Championships.
