In today’s edition of Tuttosport, the discussion turns to AC Milan’s courtship of Ralf Rangnick, which is understandably overshadowed by the Coronavirus. Yet what may be of interest to Spurs fans is that Mitchell has become increasingly revered in the game.
The career of the man that Daniel Levy some 3 years ago sacked, in an incredible manoeuvre that included a notice period of some 16-months, appears to be going from strength to strength with The Italian press already imagining what Ralf Rangnick’s go-to transfer man might achieve.
Paul is currently head of recruitment of German club RB Leipzig, where Ralf Rangnick is the head coach. The excitement in Italy is that the pair might arrive in the capital as a double deal.
I said of Mitch in August 2016, “I take a view that Premier League football is a small world and if there are any ‘issues’ with Mitchell, they will be revealed when he struggles to gain meaningful employment elsewhere.” Just recently, we looked at a piece in The Guardian where Tottenham’s former scout David Webb sang Mitchell’s praises.
Clearly, Levy binned a winner.
