Tottenham Hotspur journalist Jack Pitt-Brooke has been sharing some details on Lilywhites chairman Daniel Levy and his future with the north London club.
This comes after Pitt-Brooke made an appearance on a recent episode of The Athletic’s Ornstein & Chapman Podcast where he spoke about a number of topics surrounding Tottenham at the moment.
On the subject of Levy and the likelihood of him stepping down from his position at the club after numerous Spurs fans protested against the current ownership, Pitt-Brooke had this to say on the matter.
He said: “The only way that Daniel Levy would go is if ENIC were to sell and even if they did sell there is some talk that Levy might stay on as the CEO under a new ownership.
“So, in that sense, I think fans calling for Levy and ENIC to just step away are going to be disappointed.”
ENIC and Levy took over Tottenham back in 2000 from former owner Lord Alan Sugar in a deal that was worth a reported fee of £22 million.
TIF Thoughts on Jack Pitt-Brooke’s comments on Levy and his future with Spurs…
As mentioned earlier, several Spurs fans gathered outside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last week to protest against the current ownership after their short-lived involvement in the European Super League.
Taking into account what Pitt-Brooke had to say in the podcast, it seems that despite these recent protests, ENIC and Levy have no immediate intention of stepping back.
Do you think Levy should step down from Tottenham?
Spurs have only won one trophy since ENIC and Levy took over despite making it to a Champions League final in 2019 and the recent Carabao Cup final this year. The owners have clearly failed to deliver a significant amount of silverware to the club since their takeover, which would undoubtedly be another gripe the Spurs fans have with them.
In our view, if ENIC and Levy continue their ownership of Tottenham, they will need to make sure they get the protesting fans on their side and the best way they can do that would be to make sure the team are successful on the pitch.
