‘Luckily we have an F1 track and concerts to look forward to’ – Tottenham icon slams Daniel Levy after FA Cup exit
A FORMER Tottenham star has slammed Daniel Levy after the club’s FA Cup exit.
That’s by declaring: “Luckily we have concerts to look forward to!”
Spurs looked to have turned a corner last month after racking up wins against Manchester City, West Ham and Chelsea.
Defeats to Leicester and AC Milan still served as stark reminders that not everything is rosy in Antonio Conte’s camp.
But not even the most fervent doubter would have predicted Tottenham’s FA Cup fifth round exit to Championship side Sheffield United on Wednesday.
The result saw Spurs miss out on a favourable quarter-final draw at second tier side Blackburn Rover.
And it also means the Londoners have no chance of winning a trophy this season unless they can turn things around against Serie A champs Milan.
One person who was not happy at all with the FA Cup exit was Ramon Vega.
The former Switzerland defender spent four years at White Hart Lane, playing 84 times while winning the 1999 League Cup.
Vega can’t believe Spurs crashed out of the prestigious competition with a whimper.
And he took aim online at club chief Levy by having a dig at the concerts that regularly get held at Tottenham’s new £1billion stadium.
Responding to the result, Vega said: “Luckily we have an F1 track and music concerts to look forward to!”
Fans found his reaction hilarious, with one saying: “Don’t forget NFL and boxing.”
Another declared: “Good, need more ex-Spurs players speaking up.”
One noted: “Levy will be happy with no quarter-final to play, it frees up a date for another concert!”
Another added: “Club taking us all for granted, taking loyal fans’ money and more interested in putting it back into concerts, NFL, boxing etc.”
