Carragher attacks Levy Tottenham transfer policy

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has taken a shot at Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy over his transfer policy.

Carragher wrote in the Daily Mail: "Seeing (Gareth) Bale and Luka Modric lining up for Real Madrid in the Champions League final will only intensify the frustrations of supporters. Do they feel short-changed? Yes, Levy got almost £120million for the pair but couldn't he have got tough as Liverpool owner John W Henry did with Luis Suarez?

"Rather than negotiating with Madrid, shouldn't Levy have been negotiating with both players and their agents to stay? Given how Bale has progressed this season, he could have had an impact for Tottenham like Suarez has had for Liverpool.

"The trend of Tottenham cashing in, though, is not new. They have had top players including Dimitar Berbatov, Robbie Keane, Michael Carrick and Jermain Defoe, but all have had their price. If you are going to sell your best talent, why should you be a winning team?"
