Tottenham: Fans slam Gary Neville after claim Levy and Mourinho are “using each other”

Tottenham: Fans slam Gary Neville after claim Levy and Mourinho are “using each other” - Tottenham

Plenty of Tottenham fans have been reacting to Gary Neville’s comments on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football programme, as the Manchester United legend claimed Jose Mourinho and Daniel Levy are “using each other”.

Having failed to win a trophy in over a decade, you could forgive Tottenham fans for swooning over the arrival of Mourinho.

As much as the fans adored Mauricio Pochettino, Mourinho arrives with a truly ridiculous CV, including multiple Champions League and domestic league trophies.

Despite this, Neville told Sky Sports on Monday that Mourinho is not in north London to usher in some new era of huge success for the club, but rather as a win-win deal with Levy to get both parties back on track.

“I think this is to protect finances, to protect revenue. This is the new stadium, this is the fact that the team is half falling apart in terms of contracts running out and a little bit of destabilisation, trying to keep them together by appointing a big-name manager,” Neville said, as reported by Football.London.

“For me, this is absolutely a bridge for Levy and Mourinho. Jose needed to get back into the Premier League to reset himself, to re-establish himself, to be in London, Levy needed someone who could get the club back up quickly to a level that is acceptable, into the Champions League, this is a marriage of convenience.”

He continued: “This has got prenuptial written all over it like you would not believe. They are using each other. I think it’s a hard, cold conversation between two men who respect where each other is at but actually never saw each other working together.”

Talk about killing the mood. Unsurprisingly, fans aren’t too happy with Neville’s attempts to completely kill the romance of the appointment, and loads of them have been reacting angrily on Twitter.

You can find some of the best reactions down below, where one supporter said the former Red Devil would “love” Mourinho’s tenure to be a short one, while others pointed out that pretty much all managerial appointments are as he described…
