Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has provided an update on the club’s search for Jose Mourinho’s successor ahead of tonight’s final Premier League home game of the season versus Aston Villa, claiming that the club will be targeting someone who can bring “free-flowing, attacking” football back to north London.
The Portuguese manager was sacked by Spurs just over a month ago following an indifferent run of results and Levy is yet to appoint his permanent replacement, handing Ryan Mason the reins until the end of the season.
And Levy has now moved in to inform supporters on the latest in regards to the search for a new boss, issuing a lengthy statement ahead of tonight’s tussle with Villa, which will see some supporters finally make their returns to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“We shall focus on the recruitment of a new Head Coach,” Levy said in a statement on Spurs’ club website.
“We are acutely aware of the need to select someone whose values reflect those of our great Club and return to playing football with the style for which we are known – free-flowing, attacking and entertaining – whilst continuing to embrace our desire to see young players flourish from our Academy alongside experienced talent.”
