“I don’t know what he was expecting, this is what Levy always does, he’s a liar.

“He lied to Mourinho which is why he never succeeded. Mourinho was not given the players he wanted.

“Now he’s promised Conte the world and again he isn’t coughing up the funds.

“Tottenham have needed a second striker for years and it hasn’t happened.

“Conte will have only taken the Tottenham job on the guarantee that he gets to overhaul the squad.

“It looks like that won’t happen. He says he’s left it up to the club to get these deals done, good luck pal. He won’t see any signings this month.

“Honestly, it’s embarrassing. When are these managers going to learn that Levy will just say what he wants to benefit himself?”
