No kiddin'! Marseille chief Jacob admits 'Mr Levy not the easiest in negotiations'

Olympique Marseille chief Gunter Jacob is relieved after completing their business with Tottenham.

With the transfer window closed, Marseille managed to sell Georges-Kevin Nkoudou to Spurs and took Clinton Njie on-loan from the Londoners.

Jacob was happy to get both deals done, confessing he found Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy hard work.

"The Nkoudou - Njie deal? You know the negotiations started before me and it was a bit difficult because this was a double transfer," said Jacob.

"Mr Levy, this is someone who is not the easiest in negotiations, but it was okay. It was hard, but I'm glad we managed to complete the transfer.

"The length of time it took is not important."
