Well respected football journalist Fabrizio Romano believes that a post- Mourinho Tottenham will now switch their sights from Milan Škriniar to another, perhaps less expensive centre back, now the Portuguese has gone. This twist came via the Italian’s Here We Go Podcast, writes the BoyHotspur.
I take a view that the reality of this situation is that a bad season – one that fails to include European Football for Spurs will only compound the already catastrophically damaged finances – and leave Daniel Levy with no choice but to scale back spending yet again.
Not only has the team failed to capture any prize money, but there is the pay-off for José Mourinho that will be coming out of the club’s coffers for the foreseeable future. A new expense will soon rear its head in the form of a sign-on fee for a new coach.
