Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has been accused of refusing to give up control as the club’s manager search continues.
Former striker Mido made the accusation less than a week after talks with Antonio Conte broke down.
The former Chelsea boss held discussions over the vacancy but they collapsed for several reasons, one of which being the Italian wanted a level of control that Levy wasn’t prepared to give him.
Mauricio Pochettino too sought more control shortly before he was axed as Tottenham manager in 2019.
Mido has voiced his frustrations on Twitter claiming Levy will never hire a manager who looks to have a greater say over key decisions.
He said: ” #tottenham fans should know better.. Daniel Levy will never bring any manger in who wants full control of the football decisions will never bring in a demanding manager!!
“That’s why he sacked Poch when he started to ask for more players when he started to compare his team to city.”
Levy has always been a shrewd operator and received praise for running Tottenham well from a financial standpoint.
However on the pitch many feel as if a lack of investment over the past five years has cost the club dear.
Pochettino, in his final summer before being sacked, claimed the club should change his title to head coach as he had no say over transfers or player contracts.
That is in stark contrast to the role the Argentine appears to have at PSG.
Despite that Pochettino is reportedly open to a north London return but the Parisians are refusing to let him leave.
The PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi claims the 49-year-old has expressed no desire to leave as he remains heavily involved with their future plans.
He told L’Equipe : “Look, at the end of the season, I had two meetings with Pochettino, two or three hours each time.
“He never told me he wanted to leave. He never had an attitude that suggested he wanted to leave.
“In fact, it’s the opposite. He was totally involved in everything: the club, the structure, the organisation, what he needs for next season…he talks almost every day with Leonardo about the transfer window and the players.”
