Simon Jordan believes Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy ‘sacrificed’ the Carabao Cup last for financial causes.
Spurs sacked supervisor Jose Mourinho final week, simply six days earlier than they have been because of tackle Manchester City at Wembley.
The timing of the transfer got here underneath scrutiny as Mourinho had been introduced in to finish the membership’s 13-year trophy drought.
Final week, Jordan supplied his idea that the Portuguese supervisor was axed as it might have been more durable to do away with him in the event that they did go on to win the cup.
Ryan Mason was put in as interim head coach and Spurs went on to lose 1-0.
Former Crystal Palace proprietor Jordan believes the choices taken over the course of the final week, and even additional past that, all boil right down to cash.
“You need to distill Daniel Levy down into his most interesting format. What’s Daniel? He’s an accountant. He’s not an entrepreneur, he’s an accountant,” Jordan advised talkSPORT.
“He works for Joe Lewis, who I believe would promote Tottenham if he bought the proper cash for it with a tool in hand that the membership is shedding cash.
“The one factor Daniel is motivated by is the membership attaining cash. After we had a problem final 12 months in regards to the membership furloughing folks, what was that about? Cash.
“Why did the membership go into the European Tremendous League? Cash.
“When are they at their happiest? When they’re making £130million. Why did they construct a brand new stadium? Cash. Why did they get the NFL concerned? Cash.
“Why would you are taking Mourinho out on the eve of a last that you just introduced him in to attain? I believe it’s as a result of they didn’t need him anymore.
“They’d made their choice that it had gone that method and all they have been doing was treading water.
“A League Cup last was sacrificed. I don’t suppose they’d have overwhelmed Man City with Mourinho there, however that they had extra of an opportunity with Mourinho than they ever had, with due respect, than Ryan Mason and Chris Powell.”
Spurs have been outplayed in Sunday’s last with the 1-Zero scoreline not totally a good reflection on the sport.
Harry Kane didn’t handle a single shot heading in the right direction with Pep Guardiola’s facet hardly ever in any hassle.
“I don’t suppose it tells us something we don’t already know,” Jordan added. “He (Guardiola) will get to finals, takes them significantly and Man City are the very best crew within the Premier League.
“Tottenham are a mile off. The change in administration, if there was any notion Ryan Mason was going to be the remedy for it goes to the birds.
“Ryan has are available in to do a really tough job. Spurs in that recreation would by no means have ceded that quantity of management to Man City within the first 30 minutes.”
