Tottenham’s management have reacted angrily to Arsenal signing Mesut Ozil. The player’s transfer to Tottenh was said to have been thrown up by Daniel Levy when discussing the transfer of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid but he was outrightly told the player was not for sale. However, on the very last day of the transfer window, the player was sold to Arsenal for 42.5 million pounds. This deal has now made Tottenham management angry.
As a result of this, Tottenham’s management are reconsidering their partnership with Real Madrid. It would be recall that Tottenham made an agreement with Real Madrid when they were selling Modric to Madrid. This agreement was to make it easier for both clubs to exchange players, coaching ideas and the likes but with sale of Ozil to Arsenal after Tottenham made an attempt, the fans have asked their club to reconsider the said agreement.
“Gareth was a player we had absolutely no intention of selling,” said Levy. “Such has been the attention from Real Madrid and so great is Gareth’s desire to join them, that we have taken the view that the player will not be sufficiently committed to our campaign in the current season.”
Tottenham fans this week launched an online petition demanding an end to the partnership, stating “Since we have agreed to form the partnership, Real Madrid C.F. have treated us and our players without respect including “tapping” up Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.
“The transfer of Mezut Ozil to our top rivals in order to recoup money spent on Gareth Bale is the ultimate duplicitous action and we deserve a fair and mutual exchange between clubs rather than being treated as a feeder club.”
Funny old scums down the lane won’t stop been jealous. Forever in our shadows.
