Glenn Hoddle "scratching his head" at Daniel Levy decision over new manager

Tottenham Hotspur legend Glenn Hoddle admits that he has been left "scratching his head" at chairman Daniel Levy's process of appointing the next Spurs manager.

Tottenham Hotspur legend Glenn Hoddle has admitted that he is confused as to chairman Daniel Levy's process during his search for a new manager.

Spurs have been without a permanent manager since Jose Mourinho left the club in April and Levy is yet to announce who will succeed interim boss Ryan Mason in the dugout.

Multiple candidates have been linked with the role in North London, but so far no negotiations have been able to go the distance, as talks with Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso, among many others, have broken down.

Speaking to Betfair, Hoddle sent a message to Levy: "I'm still scratching my head to see where Levy's going to go. I wonder if he'd be better going to someone who's been in the Premier League, knows the Premier League. That might work better than going for a foreign manager.

"Graham Potter at Brighton has done a great job, but whether he can cope with the pressure is another thing. Only Daniel Levy knows and I get the feeling he's chasing his tail at the moment.

"It seems like we are going south, not north. Two years ago, we were travelling north, but we've reversed the car and we're going down south. I feel that we've got to have some stability for a few seasons. It's got to be a mini rebuild to see if that success can come round the corner. There are too many facets to the squad that are negative at the moment.

"Daniel has got to make the biggest decision he's ever had to make in the 20 years since being in charge of Spurs. It's a crossroads for the club - I just pray and hope that he gets the right man that can turn things around."

Spurs' 2021-22 Premier League season kicks off on Sunday, August 15 against league champions Manchester City.
