Tottenham are advertising for five key roles as they look to build world-class scouting and insights departments.

The club is embarking on a new era with new staff heading up the football operation. Scott Munn arrived from City Football Group to become Chief Football Officer in April 2023 and Johan Lange followed in November as Technical Director.

The Dane is responsible for recruitment, analytics and talent identification across senior and Academy teams. He was previously the Sporting Director and then Global Director of Football Development at Aston Villa and brought two key staff with him from the Midlands.

The first was compatriot Frederik Leth, with whom he had also worked at FC Copenhagen. Leth’s title at Tottenham is Head of Football Insights and Strategy and he heads up the new Football Insights Department, which provides data-derived insights that impact decision-making across departments.
