Exclusive: Darren Bent claims behind-the-scenes 'Breakdown' between two Tottenham men
Darren Bent claims there has been a “breakdown” behind the scenes between Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy.
The former Spurs and England striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, says that there is clearly something not right when it comes to the relationship of the two senior figures in north London and that it is causing problems at the club.
Tottenham have lost four of their last five games ahead of Saturday’s clash with Watford, the manager insisting he is happy with his squad and that he does not expect any changes in the January transfer window.
Bent says that something is clearly wrong behind-the-scenes at Tottenham and that Pochettino and Levy’s relationship is not quite as strong as it has been in recent years.
Asked if he thought all was well between the two senior figures, Bent told Football Insider: “I’m not quite sure at the minute. Something just doesn’t seem to be quite right at the minute.
“There’s a breakdown somewhere, why there’s a breakdown I don’t know, but they’re not quite on the same page at the moment, which isn’t good.

“Spurs are quite a private organisation so it’s very rare you get these things coming out.”
Pochettino has been at Spurs since joining from Southampton back in 2014, establishing the north Londoners as top-four regulars since his reign in the dugout.
However, despite reaching the Champions League final last season, the Lilywhites have drawn and lost the opening two games of their European campaign, including a 7-2 thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich.
In other Tottenham news, Darren Bent has suggested that one senior player at Spurs could be sold for as little as £15million.
