Tottenham chairman pens letter to club fans following difficult season

Tottenham chairman pens letter of hope to club fans following difficult season

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has written a letter to the fans admitting the club have endured a difficult campaign while claiming their ‘footballing decisions’ in recent years have not yielded results.

The club parted ways with Antonio Conte in March and charged his former assistant Cristian Stellini to steer the club until the end of the season.

However, Stellini was also relieved of his duties a month later with Ryan Mason installed as caretaker manager, but the Englishman has done little to improve the club’s on-field situation.

They have failed to secure Champions League qualification for next season and face a fight to earn a place in Europe’s other tournaments.

Tottenham also lost director of football Fabio Paratici, who resigned from his role after being handed a long-term ban in Italy which FIFA subsequently upgraded to a worldwide sanction.

Levy, who has been Tottenham chairman since 2001, has written a letter to the fans admitting a shared frustration at how the season has panned out.

“This has been an immensely difficult season,” Levy wrote (via the club’s official website).

“We made footballing decisions over recent seasons based on ambition and a desire to bring success to our club, and they have not delivered what we had hoped.

“Your frustration has been understandable, and all of us at the club have shared it.”

Levy also hinted at the appointment of a permanent manager, and a new director of football is expected to arrive at the end of the season.

“We have undertaken a thorough and rigorous review of our footballing operations,” the Tottenham chief continued.

“Scott Munn joins us in the summer as our new chief football officer, and we look forward to sharing further news with you post-season.”

Tottenham suffered a capitulating 3-1 defeat to London rivals Brentford which further dented their chances of qualifying for Europe this season.

Mason’s side face relegation-battling Leeds United in their final Premier League fixture, knowing anything but victory will be catastrophic to their European hopes.
