Expert hails Daniel Levy after 'staggering' Tottenham development - 'this is a game-changer'

Daniel Levy must take credit for the “staggering” financial situation at Tottenham.

That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

Tottenham are starting to reap the benefits of moving to their new stadium following a full season of fans being able to attend home games.

Thanks to the new stadium and Levy’s management, Wenham is expecting the growth of the club to continue.

“Tottenham’s finances now we have had that full season of the stadium being open to fans, this is a game changer,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“This is why you are seeing money available at the level it is. This is why we will continue to make big signings this summer.

“Even before Covid we found ourselves in the top-ten European clubs in terms of money. We had overtaken Arsenal already but that gap is going to become mammoth in the coming years.

“Tottenham took more from their club shop than Burnley took in gate receipts last season. These are staggering numbers and it’s only going to get bigger.

“We still have the naming rights deal to come. Tottenham have, and credit to Levy and the board, organically pushed themselves beyond what seemed unimaginable 15 or so years ago without Russian or Saudi money.

“We are now becoming a European superpower and I don’t use that word lightly. The facts speak for themselves.

“I think that this time next year Tottenham will be in the top six or seven clubs, overtaking Juventus and all of the Italian clubs.

“You look at what those clubs win, you think they should be generating more money but they just aren’t.
