Mido takes aim at Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy
Former Tottenham striker Mido takes aim at Daniel Levy, who ‘will NEVER bring in a demanding manager’, for investing in their £1bn stadium rather than the team after Spurs’ move for Antonio Conte collapsed over the club’s ambitions
- Mido has slammed Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy over Spurs’ manager hunt
- Spurs are yet to find a successor to Jose Mourinho after his sacking in April
- The north Londoners recently abandoned their pursuit of Antonio Conte
- Mido claims that Levy will ‘never appoint a demanding manager’ to the vacancy
Mido has slammed Daniel Levy amid Tottenham’s prolonged search for a new manager as the Egyptian insisted that the Spurs chief ‘will never bring any manager in who wants full control of footballing decisions’.
Spurs’ pursuit of a successor to Jose Mourinho has taken longer than anticipated, with Julian Nagelsmann, Erik ten Hag and Brendan Rodgers all rejecting Levy’s advances.
The north Londoners had been in talks with Antonio Conte following his exit from Inter Milan, but the club abandoned their move for the Italian amid uncertainties over the fiery coach.

Spurs are understood to have been hesitant about Conte’s salary expectations and record with young players, while the 51-year-old held reservations about the club’s long-term ambitions.
And former Tottenham striker Mido has taken to social media to hit out at Levy, opining that the shrewd chairman will ‘never bring in a demanding manager’.
‘#tottenham fans should know better,’ he wrote to his 5.3m followers. ‘Daniel Levy will never bring any manger in who wants full control of the football decisions will never bring in a demanding manager!!

Mido took to Twitter to claim that Levy will never appoint a ‘demanding’ manager to the post
‘That’s why he sacked Poch [Mauricio Pochettino] when he started to ask for more players when he started to compare his team to [Man] City.’
Mido also questioned whether Spurs ought to have invested heavily in the playing squad, as opposed to their brand new stadium.
‘Building a new stadium is great for the owners it allows them to make more money but it means nothing to the fans!
The Egyptian claimed that Mauricio Pochettino was sacked after asking for financial backing
‘Fans want to see their team signing the best players and the best managers around #spurs need at least 4 top players all around and a top manager #COYS’.
The north Londoners are certainly stuck in a limbo, with the high-profile acquisition of Mourinho failing massively, the club have missed out on a top four finish for a second successive campaign.
Star striker and talisman Harry Kane is understood to want out this summer, with Manchester City his preferred destination as Pep Guardiola searches for a replacement for Sergio Aguero.
