Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is “clueless” about who to appoint next as manager with him still totally unsure who to go for, FootballDirectNews.com has learnt. The Spurs chief has been linked with a variety of big name managers to replace Tim Sherwood – with Frank de Boer and Louis van Gaal thought to be among the front-runners. But despite claims of approaches to various candidates FDN has now been informed from a source close to the club that no approach has been made to any possible successor yet – news that will worry Tottenham fans with the summer fast approaching.
