As reported in a tweet from reporter Tariq Panja, Spurs chairman Levy has been voted onto the European Club Association (ECA) board. The ECA is described on its website as “the sole, independent body directly representing football clubs at European level” with the aim “to create a new, more democratic governance model that truly reflects the key role of the clubs”.
What Levy will be doing in this new role is unclear at this point, but it should be pointed out that Levy’s inclusion did force Manchester City’s CEO Ferran Soriano to withdraw his candidacy for the same spot, with Panja reporting that he did so “when it became clear Levy was preferred by most members”.
Are you happy with Tottenham's summer business?
“Of course. Levy is bigger than Man City. Not surprising”
It is interesting to see that he was given the role just five months after the club announced their intention to form their own breakaway Super League with other big names in the footballing world.
