Tottenham have confirmed that Brian Carey has left his position as head of recruitment at the club. Having played for Leicester City and Wrexham during his playing career, the 53-year-old went on to manage the Welsh club on a temporary basis before later having assistant manager roles with Doncaster Rovers, Wolves and Chesterfield.
Arriving at Tottenham six years ago and taking on a more behind-the-scenes role compared to his previous roles in the game, Carey has now decided to call time on his position in N17. There have been some key changes at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium over the past year following the arrival of Fabio Paratici as managing director of football.
Previously with Juventus and playing a key role in their recruitment as they dominated in Serie A, the Italian has already had a big impact in his short time at the club. football.london reported back in November that Spurs’ managing director of football had begun to undertake a thorough evaluation process of all of the departments that linked into the football side of the club in order to raise them to those levels he had been used to at Juventus for more than a decade.

As part of the changes, Spurs are looking to appoint a No.2 to Paratici ahead of a busy summer for the club. With technical performance director Steve Hitchen working alongside him and often seen together at games, the 45-year-old parted ways with Tottenham in February.
A statement on the club’s official website following Carey’s exit read: “We can confirm that Head of Recruitment Brian Carey has decided to leave his role following six years at the club. We would like to thank Brian for his work and wish him well for the future.”
