The chairman of Tottenham Hotspur Daniel Levy declared that they will not sell any football players to another football team once again, emphasizing the difference between the present-day club and the previous one. He spoke highly to the club manager for his efficient strategy in football playing, remarking him as the best coach he saw in the meet with supporters of Tottenham Hotspur. Since selling footballers like Michael Carrick, Dimitar Berbatov, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale from 2006 to 2013, the football club Tottenham Hotspur is attached with a selling label. However, only Kyle Walker was sold and the football club claimed he moved to club Man City with blessing from Pochettino.
A source revealed that negotiations between Toby Alderweireld, a Belgian center-back, and the football club broke down. The Belgian football player is the latest critical one who have connected with Tottenham Hotspur. The excellent footballer Toby Alderweireld would like to triple his £50,000 salary per week while the Tottenham Hotspur is unwilling to pay such salary, given his healthy conditions and his age. Because they would not like to pay the 29-year old footballer who have got severe injuries in the recent two seasons. Similar conditions also is confronted for the Harry Kane, a former winner of Premier League Golden Boot; the manager of Tottenham Hotspur Andre Villas-Boas once suggested him left the football club to seek more opportunities.
The manager Villas-Boas indicated that one will leave for Tottenham Hotspur if he aspired to pursue accolades and trophies; on the contrary, one will stay with the football team if he preferred stable life. The chairman of Tottenham Hotspur Daniel Levy was also asked whether the club will provide higher wages in case of increases in gate receipts from the season’s Champions League matches. The chairman rejected to answer the question with a clear figure, but he said their club will cost 50% income to pay salaries to football players rather than a fixed ratio.
In addition, he also confirmed that the new stadium of the club is still in construction. Although the project was delayed a little, he also hope the project could be accomplished and the stadium could be put into use as planned. According to previous news, the roof of stadium could be installed prior to January or early February. However, Levy claimed that the compression ring was completed last weekend; roof lift will be installed in the next fortnight. The main reason for the delay rests on bad weather and high winds while the club also hoped the new football matches could be held at new football stadium. They will be very disappointed if the case was not consistent with plan.
In the very beginning, they estimated the cost of the new stadium at £400 million; in fact, the actual cost of new stadium is two times as high as the original planned amount. Due to various reasons involving the project, the actual cost was higher than expected.
