Tottenham Hotspur’s immediate future continues to be clouded by uncertainty as the club searches for a new face to replace Harry Redknapp. David Moyes has been tipped to finally make the step up to a bigger club and he is instilled as one of the favourite to take over at White Hart Lane. But former Spurs defender Chris Perry spoke to talkSport about his fears, mainly regarding the possible exodus of the star players if the Everton manager was hired.
The 39 year old said: “We’ve heard Modric might be leaving to go to Manchester United, obviously there have been rumours about Gareth Bale recently and Van der Vaart, and is he a big enough name internationally to keep these star players at Tottenham? I don’t know. A Rafa Benitez might be a name that is good for the players to hear. He has obviously got a good track record, he won the Champions League with Liverpool.”
The club are in tough situation as they have to find a balance between the heightened expectations and actual state of affairs. Redknapp faced the boot because of his failure to get Spurs into the Champions League two seasons in a row and Perry probably raises legitimate questions about Moyes’ capability of achieving that target in a short span of time.
