Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy

Daniel Levy has always acted in the best interests of Tottenham and recent events have been no different. 

That is according to ex-Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after a dramatic week in the Spurs boardroom.

The club announced plans to join the controversial European Super League on Sunday and then sacked Jose Mourinho less than 12 hours later.


According to Eurosport, Levy feared as many as 10 Spurs players could demands transfers if Mourinho was not dismissed.

Campbell insists that Levy’s decision to bin Mourinho and to join the ESL was motivated by a desire to ensure the club’s financial health.

He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “I think Levy has the reputation of a shrewd businessman who will always do what’s best for Tottenham.

“People will look at it and talk about ethics and traditions, of course. But he did what was best for Spurs, looking at it from finances.

“But at the end of the day, he is the man who makes the decisions to try and bring as much money into that football club as he can. That’s the name of the game.

“Everyone wants the best players playing for your club, but these things cost money.

“Was it greed with the ESL? Of course, it was greedy. Football clubs are greedy. But when it contravenes the traditions, that’s when we as fans get hurt.”

Levy’s position at Spurs is under threat following the monumental backlash to the breakaway plans.

And a potential Spurs takeover could be on the cards with Joe Lewis actively looking for a buyer, as first revealed by this site.
