Tottenham chief scout departs north London club after summer transfer window work


Leonardo Gabbanini has left his role as Tottenham Hotspur chief scout, understands.

The Italian was appointed by former managing director of football Fabio Paratici and worked closely with Ange Postecoglou during the recent summer transfer window.

However, the Florence-born 43-year-old has now left the club, having only arrived in July last year to help Paratici find the best buys for Antonio Conte's very set system as well as the club's academy.

Gabbanini was brought in to expand and improve Spurs' scouting network and wrote in a feature on him during the summer that he expects high standards from his scouts, including detailed reports, analysis and data. It is no coincidence that the north London club have been tipped this summer to improve the quality of the data available to their analysts going forward because it's an area of ever-growing importance in such a pressurised market.

Spurs' new chief football officer Scott Munn started officially at the club on Thursday and is expected to swiftly bring in a new technical director to act as a director of football figure between him and Postecoglou.
