Perception appears to be the word of the day. Antonio Conte’s perception of Tottenham was that if he could bring his talents on the pitch to a club that had achieved so much off the pitch, then this was another side that he could rejuvenate.
A common perception amongst many fans is that Daniel Levy is an astute businessman. Yet, if we look at this summary of managerial payoffs from ENIC, composed by The Sun, what we see is one hell of a lot of money spent on mopping up self-inflicted situations.
Even if one were to take a charitable view and discount the two coaches prior to Poch, this situation is appalling. Nigh on £70million was wasted on not backing Mauricio Pochettino alone.
Dearie, dearie me.
