Robinson 'shocked' by latest on Tottenham manager hunt

Paul Robinson is “shocked” by the way Tottenham have conducted their manager search.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former White Hart Lane number one is worried by the lack of direction at the club when key decisions must be made regarding recruitment and the future of Harry Kane.

The London club are still in search of a new manager nearly two months on from Jose Mourinho’s dismissal.

As reported by Sky Sports, Spurs called off their plans to appoint ex-Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte on Saturday after the two parties failed to reach an agreement.

It appears Tottenham have missed out Julian Nagelsmann, Brendan Rodgers, Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte this summer.

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of Spurs’ manager hunt, Robinson said: “The way this has been done has shocked me.

“Daniel Levy is a very astute businessman who is very clever and has looked after the best interests of the club in all his time. But the sacking of Mourinho now looks very strange.

“I thought there would be a clear direction as to where the club was going but that hasn’t been the case. Nothing has come to fruition with a number of managers who are all of differing profiles.

“There doesn’t seem to be a plan, it’s worrying. An appointment needs to be made sooner rather than later because there are big decisions to be made. They need to sign two centre-halves and the future of Harry Kane needs to be resolved.”
