'He's going nowhere' - Collymore explains why Levy won't leave Tottenham

Daniel Levy

Stan Collymore has suggested how Daniel Levy will protect his position at Tottenham Hotspur.

Former Liverpool and Aston Villa star Stan Collymore has given his thoughts on why Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy won’t be going anywhere as pressure mounts on officials at White Hart Lane.

Fans seem discontented with the recent performances and decisions made by Mauricio Pochettino, with Levy not escaping scrutiny at the club.

However, Collymore suggested live on air for talkSPORT yesterday that Levy will always do the same thing to protect his own position as chairman.

“When the banners start to come out in protest – He’ll always do the same thing and make the manager the sacrificial lamb as a change – He’s going nowhere,” said Collymore when debating Tottenham’s fortunes with a fan.

Fans seem angry with Levy because of his decisions while he’s been at the club, which has led to the routine changing of the manager at White Hart Lane as well as the sales of key players.

Both Luka Modric and Gareth Bale were flogged to Real Madrid, with Hugo Lloris also linked with a move to the Bernabeu.

To replace those key players Tottenham have spent a lot of cash but on players who aren’t of the same standard.

Harry Redknapp was the last boss to get Spurs into the Champions League and they also finished fourth one season, kept out because Chelsea won the Champions League which led to their right to retain the trophy.

He was fired and neither Andre Villas-Boas or Tim Sherwood were given a chance to get the team into the top four.

Those things are partly attributed to the inconsistency and poor performances of the side, but Collymore seems to be right, with pressure mounting over Pochettino’s position as manager, not Levy’s as chairman.
