Tottenham documents show Daniel Levy ahead of all managers in one area

Revealed: Tottenham records show Daniel Levy has an edge over all other directors in one area

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is the highest paid manager in the Premier League, Football Insider can reveal.

According to Spurs’ latest 2021/22 accounts, Levy receivesthe an annual salary of £3.3m, a salary comparable to that of many of the club’s first-team players.

Levy’s salary is higher than that of all other top playmakers, with Brighton’s Paul Barber in second place on a salary of around £2.9m a year.

Manchester City chief executive Ferran Soriano is also expected to receive a large salary at the Etihad Stadium, but last season’s treble winners were the only Premier League club not to reveal their director salaries.

Levy has been at Tottenham since 2000, when ENIC first bought a stake in the north London club.

He joined the board following the investment and a year later became the league’s youngest ever president, having replaced Alan Sugar.

Levy was also a director of Rangers until 2004, after ENIC purchased a significant stake in the Scottish club.

But for the last 19 years all his attention has been on Tottenham, with the club seeing huge revenue growth under his tenure.

Levy also oversaw the club’s move from White Hart Lane to the newly built Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2019.

Tottenham have been named the Premier League’s most profitable club for 2023 with a three-year operating profit of £340 million.

However, despite financial success off the pitch, Tottenham only won one League Cup during Levy’s tenure.

‘You never know’ – Dwight Yorke names his three horses for Premier League title race – Spurs Web – Tottenham Hotspur Football News

Dwight Yorke expects a three-way race for the Premier League title between Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool, but admitted a “surprise” from Tottenham cannot be ruled out for now.

Before the season began, Spurs weren’t even considered by many to be contenders for a top-four finish, let alone potential title challengers.

However, the Lilywhites have put in some excellent performances this season and look a formidable unit when they have their best XI on the pitch.

Unlike some of his predecessors, Ange Postecoglou has not publicly downplayed the team’s hopes or ambitions.

In fact, he did the opposite, insisting that Spurs fans have every right to dream of something special this season (Football.London).

However, Yorke believes we will have to wait until mid-season before we can truly judge Spurs, claiming they are currently a step below City, Arsenal and Liverpool.

Are Spurs the dark horses to watch in the title race?
The former Man Utd striker told Stocklytics (via Liverpool Echo): “I think the title race is between Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool.

It is very foolish to count Liverpool out, especially when you see their attacking threat and the players they have.

“I still think they are a threat and if you are a football fan you would be stupid not to think Liverpool are in that conversation.

We saw Arsenal score points against City, and we also saw City lose to Wolves, which was unheard of.

“There are some visible cracks now that Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan are not there and City are not as strong as they would like to be.

However, they are still very good. There is some hope for Arsenal and Liverpool will look for their chance.

“These are the three for me, the rest will come second. I think Spurs are great and we’ve seen the likes of Aston Villa top the table at the start of the season, but ask me about Tottenham in January.

“We’ve seen strange exceptions in the Premier League, with the likes of Blackburn and Leicester, so I don’t discount Spurs or give them any more credit.

“In football you never know and this makes it fascinating. After December we will know what the championship will really be like and then we will understand who is really involved.

Clearly, most Spurs fans recognize that talk of a title tilt is rather premature at this point, given that it’s the media exploiting the prospect at the moment.

They would be the ones to turn back and suggest we “bottle it up” if we leave, even though Tottenham were completely written off at the start of the season.
