Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino are continuing the building project at Spurs. Steve Hitchen is to be appointed either Chief Scout or Head of Player Recruitment depending upon which article you read and now comes news of a another new appointment.
Kenny Jackett is a former Welsh international and Watford midfield/ defensive stalwart, who played over 330 games for his only club. Since 1996 he has moved into management, firstly with Watford, then Swansea City in 2004, Millwall in 2007, Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2013 and very briefly with Rotherham United in 2016, until he resigned after just 39 days.
Now Spurs have handed him a role working with the youth players in the academy. He managed Harry Kane when he was Millwall boss. Presumably he still has managerial ambitions as he was recently linked with the Nottingham Forrest job so the role might be a temporary one. It hasn't been reported on the official website.
