‘Jose tries to blame everyone – he HAS to take responsibility’: Spurs are an ‘incredibly tough guard’ under Mourinho, emphasizes Jamie Redknapp – who says Daniel Levy will ‘hate’ the fact that assets like Dele Alli and Harry Winks are devaluing

After spending some time at Spurs, I know Daniel Levy isn’t going to like that many of the players he has devalue their assets, he hates that.
He wants to keep players’ assets, so when it comes to selling, they are worth more than what you bought them for. If you just put them aside like him, I don’t think it helps a bit. ‘
