Noel Whelan insists that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has done a “phenomenal” job after the publication of the club’s financial results.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Leeds United striker has lauded the 58-year-old for laying the groundwork in building the club’s commercial standing.
Tottenham revealed their fiscal results for the 2018/19 period on Wednesday, with a gross profit of £68.6million after £460.7million worth of revenue.

Whelan admits it has been a remarkable achievement for the Lilywhites and made the exciting prediction that the club’s numbers could be even better next year.
Whelan told Football Insider: “Very shrewd businessman, isn’t he? Great numbers when it comes to the end of the year.
“With the new stadium and everything that they’ve put into that, to be coming out with those numbers is phenomenal, really.

“I’m sure that’s will be bettered next season as well, with the new capacity, with the new stadium, holding events like the boxing with Anthony Joshua etc.
“All these things were in Daniel Levy’s mind, hence why he’s a very good businessman and they’ve got everything they want now.”
Last season saw Tottenham reach the Champions League final, where they lost to Liverpool, and finish fourth in the Premier League.
However, they currently sit eighth in the top-flight table, seven points behind Chelsea in fourth, and are out of Europe after defeat to RB Leipzig.
