'We have created a title race' - Daniel Levy delivers verdict on Tottenham season
By Danny Wright
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has said he is proud of what the club has achieved this season ahead of their final match at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
It will no doubt be an emotional occasion for everyone associated with the North London club as Mauricio Pochettino’s men look to end the season unbeaten at The Lane against Manchester United.
Spurs can secure second place in the Premier League with a victory, which will be their highest position since the competition was rebranded in 1992.
Levy, who has been the Tottenham chairman since 2001, made reference to Tottenham’s targets last year and how they have managed to achieve them.
“Ahead of the last home match of last season we were hoping to secure a Champion’s League place and finishing second was a target,” said the 55-year-old in a statement on Tottenham’s official website.

“Ahead of our last home match this season we have already secured Champion’s League qualification and we are in second place, which would be a record Premier League position finish.
“For the second season running we have created a title race.”
Spurs can secure the runners-up spot to Chelsea with three points against Man United before demolition work takes place on White Hart Lane in order to pave way for the new state-of-the-art facility.
Chelsea ensured they would lift the Premier League trophy with a nervy 1-0 win at West Brom on Friday night, leaving an unassailable gap to second-placed Spurs.
Pochettino and his men have to win at least one of their final three fixtures to make sure that they aren’t beaten to second by Manchester City, who closed the gap down to five points with a 2-1 victory over Leicester on Saturday.
