Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has claimed that former manager Andre Villas-Boas and ex-technical director Franco Baldini were at fault for wasting the money from Gareth Bale’s sale to Real Madrid, reports the Daily Mirror.
After selling the forward to Los Blancos in 2013 for £86 million, the club used the money to bring in seven players to replace him. Roberto Soldado, Christian Eriksen, Nacer Chadli, Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Vlad Chiriches, and Erik Lamela have had varying degrees of success at White Hart Lane since then.
Except for Eriksen and Chadli they have largely struggled, and this has to be seen as a missed opportunity for the team to really kick on. AVB has already blamed the failure on Levy for bringing in different players to the ones that he had asked for according to the report. However, the chairman has now thrown that right back at him, saying that all of the signings were backed by the Portuguese and Baldini.
