Playing as a midfielder throughout the 90s and early to mid 00s, Jamie Redknapp is known primarily for his playing days with Liverpool. However, he still has a love for Spurs who have enjoyed recent dominance over Arsenal – until now.

The Gunners are a whopping 20 points ahead of Spurs, having played the same number of games. But Redknapp feels that, instead of getting mad, the Spurs hierarchy need to learn a thing or two from their rivals.

According to Sky Sports News, Jamie Redknapp has issued a dig at Daniel Levy. Redknapp says that it’s never been Spurs’ style to go in for the big players, like Arsenal are with Declan Rice, and it never will be their style until Daniel Levy leaves.

And he’s right. Spurs fans won’t like hearing this, but prudence only gets you so far in the business which is football. Having the lowest net spend in certain financial charts looks good on paper but when you have no trophies to show for it, it looks awful.

Things aren’t looking good for Spurs at the moment. They’re just about clinging onto fourth place but the two teams below them, Newcastle and Liverpool, have played 2 less games each. Therefore, they’re not likely to hold onto that fourth spot for much longer.

They recently parted ways with Antonio Conte via a mutual agreement. Fans will feel like Conte left the club with a bitter taste in his mouth, however, as a neutral fan, I can confidently say he was trying to do what’s right for the club. Levy is not the type of person you want to run a football club, particularly if that club are as serious as they say they are about winning trophies. Bringing in a new manager is just papering over the very deep-rooted cracks.

Do you agree with Jamie Redknapp’s criticism of Daniel Levy?
