His evaluation was primarily ‘the word is out around Europe to all prospective managers, don’t go close to it.’

That coaches, gamers and brokers are all speaking to one another about their experiences with the North Londoners and the suggestions isn’t nice.

Vega wrote on Twitter: “The Tottenham board are underestimating how small the technical soccer world is (coaches, present and ex-players and naturally brokers relating to the potential Spurs job and the fame of the membership).

“All of them discuss to one another referencing their expertise with the membership prior to now and current.

“I can inform you right here that over 99 per cent are saying the identical.

“It’s not a question of who is going to manage next season, the questions are way more profound. It’s the overall attitude and handling of the club decision-makers that makes this club today so uncertain and not united for anybody to come in.”

Vega, 51, performed for the membership 84 occasions throughout a spell between 1997-2001, successful the League Cup in 1999. Tottenham have landed ONE trophy since, the League Cup once more in 2008.

Spurs continues to be very a lot in Vega’s coronary heart, as confirmed by his common Twitter commentary.


Although the previous Switzerland defender isn’t afraid to go in two-footed with regards to ­verbals. He branded Spurs ‘the new Mickey Mouse club’ after Saturday’s embarrassing house defeat to Brentford.

To have such a stinging commentary from an ex-player isn’t an excellent look.

And it’ll have followers questioning whether or not Vega’s claims are why their managerial search seems to be stalling prefer it did within the chaotic summer season of 2021.

That 12 months Spurs had sacked Jose Mourinho every week earlier than the League Cup closing, placing Ryan Mason in interim cost — as they’ve finished now — and proceeded to lurch from candidate to candidate to exchange the Particular One.

The record went from Julian Nagelsmann, to Mauricio Pochettino, to Hansi Flick, to Antonio Conte, to Paulo Fonseca, to Gennaro Gattuso, earlier than the Londoners landed up with Nuno Espirito Santo 72 days later.

The grumpy Portuguese lasted simply 17 video games earlier than he was axed and Conte was satisfied to take over.

It was a tumultuous interval that Tottenham and chairman Levy are determined to not repeat.

Conte went in March after publicly tearing into Tottenham’s gamers, regardless of them being fourth within the Premier League desk — and in a Champions League spot. His assistant Cristian Stellini took over however was sacked after the 6-1 humbling at Newcastle.

That meant one other name for Mason, with Tottenham now struggling to even qualify for subsequent season’s third-tier Europa Convention League.

Membership insiders would say that attracting a supervisor at the moment employed elsewhere — as seems to be the intention — means having to attend till the season finishes to nominate them.

Followers had already come to phrases with the very fact their hero Poch wouldn’t be returning and that Nagelsmann and Burnley chief Vincent Kompany weren’t displaying up, both.

However Slot was somebody many Tottenham supporters felt they might get behind.

Certainly, the Dutchman appeared to many an ideal match — a charismatic coach on his manner up with a monitor file of constructing squads shortly and taking part in easy-on-the-eye soccer.

Although Spurs insist they by no means spoke to Slot, nor his membership Feyenoord, it’s comprehensible if supporters really feel like it’s again to sq. one now he’s staying with the Dutch champs.

The sense of rudderlessness is compounded by the very fact the membership are nonetheless looking for a brand new director of soccer. Fabio Paratici resigned final month after being caught up in a monetary malpractice scandal in Italy, inflicting embarrassment by affiliation to Spurs.

Spurs would favor to fill the DoF function earlier than appointing a brand new supervisor — Roma’s Tiago Pinto and former Leverkusen supremo Tim Steidten are within the body — however it isn’t a deal-breaker.

The strain is cranking up on chairman Levy to get issues proper after all of the mistaken calls of the previous couple of years, for which he put his fingers up within the membership programme on Saturday.

He additionally promised the membership would work “relentlessly” to get again on the trail to success after failing to win a trophy for FIFTEEN YEARS.

Although followers can be cautious of that closing pledge having heard one thing very related in 2021 and ending up being bored to tears by Nuno.

Levy now has Ange Postecoglou, boss of Vega’s outdated membership Celtic, in his sights.
