'20 years too late', 'Thank the lord': Some Tottenham fans react to Daniel Levy's 'good move'
Some Tottenham Hotspur fans were reacting to reports that Daniel Levy has offset some responsibility at the club.
According to The Athletic, the CEO has admitted it’s time to delegate more. Fabio Paratici is close to joining the club and will oversee all football matters.
The club chief has been at Spurs since December 2000 when ENIC bought a stake in the team.
He’s overseen a raft of changes including the move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and a run to the Champions League final.
However, he’s coming under scrutiny for his failure to appoint a ‘demanding’ manager. Former Lilywhites ace Mido has claimed Levy doesn’t want a coach in full control of footballing decisions.
TBR View: Levy right to delegate responsibility at crucial time for Tottenham
For far too long, Levy has had all the responsibility of all footballing matters. Spurs have steadily declined under his stewardship and the time for change has come.
The figure has recognised the need for change and thus appointed Paratici in a refreshing change.
The Italian’s experience in the transfer market, combined with Levy’s business-nous, could well be a winning combo moving forward.
He was a key figure in a number of signings, including Cristiano Ronaldo’s move in 2018.
Levy has made the right decision to offset some of the responsibility he holds at Tottenham. It’s a move that can help oversee mass change moving forward.

This is a step in the right direction IF Levy provides the funds and leaves Paratici to his role. If he tries to micro-manage, as he’s done in the past, this won’t matter. I hope it’s the former… #thfc #coys https://t.co/FmSsSKPfaS— TheRoyalThanimal (@RoyalThanimal) June 8, 2021
This is better than any new manager coming in. Levy is a brilliant business man, but get him far away from any footballing decisions https://t.co/Rxir9cE1yF— Charlie Brooke (@CharlieBrooke5) June 8, 2021
