Tottenham’s new financial results show that Daniel Levy has become the highest paid director in the Premier League.
Levy’s annual salary rose from £2.17m to £2.61m in 2015, putting him ahead of Manchester United’s Ed Woodward (£2.52m) and Arsenal’s Ivan Gazidis (£2.23m).
So does our esteemed leader deserve to be on so much bunce? On one hand Levy is currently doing a superb job. He has finally found the right manager, the team is doing brilliantly and the club is finally on the verge of delivering a long-needed new stadium.
On the other hand, Levy only found the right manager after countless unsuccessful attempts, he’s taken quite a long time to get the new stadium sorted after trying to move the club to Stratford and the team have only won one trophy during his stewardship.
Perhaps more pertinently, is it right that Levy should be the best paid director in English football when during his reign he’s been unwilling to pay the top wages to players and managers?
