Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy

Tottenham were set to rake in approximately £1.5billion over the next decade in the European Super League. 

That is according to finance guru and Football Insider columnist Kieran Maguire, speaking exclusively after the implosion of the breakaway competition.

Spurs were one of six English clubs to sign up for the league as founding members.

But the competition has been scrapped in the face of an unprecedented backlash from football fans worldwide.

Maguire claims that Spurs have missed out on huge sums as a result of the collapse, as have the other members of the so-called ‘big six.’

“Six into four doesn’t go in terms of Champions League places,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.

“But if we said that over the course of the next decade Spurs qualified for the Champions League on six occasions, they would make on average £60m a year. Six multiplied by £60m is £360m.

“By being in a competition that doesn’t require you to qualify and the TV money being split between fewer teams, I think they would be looking at £150m a year.

“That’s £1.5bn a decade. The start-up fee was an advance. So it was a loan that would have been deducted from future TV money, so that doesn’t come into it.”


It has been a turbulent week for Spurs who dismissed Jose Mourinho as manager on Monday.

That came after this site revealed that owner Joe Lewis is actively seeking a buyer for the club and saw a 50 per cent takeover fall through last year.
