Mauricio Pochettino was left fuming after Daniel Levy agreed a £10million Tottenham deal with Amazon to record a fly-on-the-wall documentary for this season, Football Insider understands.
Spurs became the third leading English club to allow the commercial giant access behind the scenes following Manchester City and Leeds United.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that the deal signed off by chairman Levy led to great tension with Pochettino.
The Argentine felt the cameras were intrusive and “blew his top” when it emerged that some were to be fixed in his office on a full-time basis.
Pochettino felt like he was being “spied” upon by the documentary makers and that Levy had gone too far in granting access to areas that should be sacrosanct.
The Spurs documentary, focused on the 2019-20 season, is set to air next year.
It is likely to offer plenty of interesting takes given the club’s wretched start to the campaign, the 7-2 Champions League mauling by Bayern Munich and the events leading up to the sacking of Pochettino last night and the announcement of Jose Mourinho as his successor less than 12 hours later.
The Amazon windfall will be dwarfed by the sum that the Tottenham board are set to shell out to pay off Pochettino and his backroom staff.
The Argentine was dismissed with three and a half years remaining on the £8.5million-a-year contract he agreed in May of last year.
