Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
I thought he ducked out, and Spurs where now after some Barca man as director of football.
I don't know if I quite understand what a director of football does anyway and where the overlap/distinction is between the board/director and manager. It seems to be something that Spurs like though.

...this repeats what I'd read earlier...
Not sure what to make of the man's name - sound like something you have to clear up from your carpet after 8 pints and a visit to the kebab shop.....
I'd agree with the DofF idea, if the DofF stayed longer than the manager. But at the present time, I've seen more movement at DofF than at manager level. So it seems a bit counter intuitive to me.
Given Levy's apparent 'penchant' for getting involved in the transfers anyway (and he has been the static element over a series of managers - so he obviously appears to know the 'profile' of the squad he's/the club's after), I just don't see the benefit. Maybe I would follow it if I knew the internal workings of the club.
Oh well, as long as they stay profitable and get players who play the football I like, I suppose it matters not a jot what their structure is - as long as everyone at the club is happy with it.
