Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will not apologise in person over the failed European Super League plans, according to Paul Robinson.
The former Spurs goalkeeper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted the Lilywhites chief would not follow Liverpool owner John Henry in addressing supporters directly over video.
In a clip posted on the Reds’ official Twitter account, the American businessman issued a public apology to fans for the “disruption” caused by the Super League reveal.

Meanwhile, Levy issued a written statement on Tuesday after it was confirmed Spurs had taken action to withdraw from the group of Super League clubs.
However, he did not offer an outright apology.
The Spurs chairman instead stated that the club “regret the anxiety and upset caused by the ESL proposal”.
As revealed by Football Insider, Levy is coming under increasing pressure from supporters to step down after the calamitous ESL saga.
Robinson insisted the chairman was not the type to make grand gestures like Liverpool’s owners.
He suggested the statement issued by Spurs was enough.
“That’s not in Daniel’s makeup, he doesn’t often speak on camera,” Robinson told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.
“After working closely with him, he’s a quiet, unassuming man who goes about his business. I think that the statement they have released is enough.
“They’ve apologised in a way that others have. They have realised it has caused such a problem and that it wasn’t the right thing to do.
“However, I don’t think we’ll see Daniel talk on camera.”

In the statement, Levy suggested the ESL would help “better ensure financial fair play and financial sustainability”.
All six English clubs pulled out days after the plans were announced on Sunday.
