Slot has also been compared to Liverpool’s Klopp. As recently as Wednesday, former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan claimed Slot can be Levy’s own Klopp, with his style of play as well as tactics in the transfer market.

Jordan said on talkSPORT: “What he’s always needed, and it’s easy for me to say, is someone like Klopp, that build the club from the fanbase through to the ownership model. Klopp hasn’t been given an embarrassment of riches, he’s taken [Philippe] Coutinho, slung him out of the door, got £150million and bought Virgil van Dijk and the goalkeeper, Alisson, and built around that.

“So this is why this Slot character, at this stage in his development, coming from Dutch football, winning in Dutch football, coming here and playing a brand of football that will excite the Tottenham fans and get that noise quelled about how they play. And then get the other noise quelled about winning games and being able to attract some talent into the dressing room that is going to be reflective of what the Tottenham fans want.”
