Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest claim surrounding the north London club’s technical performance director Steve Hitchen. 

This comes after Spurs-focused Twitter account @TheSpursExpress shared a post relaying a claim made by Lilywhites journalist Alasdair Gold in a recent article for Football.london.

Starting with a current Tottenham star. How many PL goals has Harry Kane scored for Spurs?

Gold revealed that “a number of staff and players at Tottenham have been left unhappy with what has happened to Hitchen, who is a popular figure within the club,” in regards to another claim in the article saying that they are trying to lure former Juventus director Fabio Paratici to north London, which they are now reportedly close to announcing.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Tottenham supporters who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on this latest claim.

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say in response to Gold’s latest claim about Hitchen?

“Popular for doing what? He has hardly been great at his job.”

@MattJarviscoys

“This club man oh my days”

@james62060247

“Absolutely no sympathy from me or I’d imagine 99% of the fan base buddy do one! Your recruitment was shocking!”

@_Goughy

“They’ve turned on Levy”

@ERIKLEBALLROL

“If he doesn’t do his job right then he gets removed… simple”

@RussellStander

“This is laughable! The only reason any of them would be unhappy is because they know their easy lives at Spurs have ended Hitchen being relinquished of his transfer role means we get new players in, which means the deadwood finally goes”

@HotspurHustle

“Club’s a shambles”

@thejondog

Looking at the replies to this post, it’s clear to see that these Tottenham fans don’t have much sympathy for Hitchen and his reported current situation in regards to the club looking to add Paratici to their ranks behind the scenes.

Do you have any sympathy for Hitchen?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given how the north London club haven’t managed to win a trophy since the 2007/08 season and ended their latest season in their lowest position since the /09 campaign, it’s easy to see why these Spurs fans haven’t exactly been singing the praises of Hitchen or any of the club’s current high-level staff.
