Kenny salutes Levy for 'working his magic' after 'massive' Tottenham news
Tottenham chief Daniel Levy deserves credit for all he has achieved this summer.
So says ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Spurs’ co-owner and chairman.
Levy was appointed as the Premier League’s ambassador to the European Club Association on 7 September.
He has replaced outgoing Man United chief executive Ed Woodward in the role and was appointed ahead of Man City’s Ferran Soriano.
His induction onto the board of the confederation of Europe’s most powerful clubs comes just months after Spurs resigned from the committee.
Tottenham, alongside the other 11 Super League teams, withdrew from the ECA en masse after the breakaway plot was announced.

And Kenny claimed that it is “very strange” that Levy has been instated into such a powerful role despite this fact.
He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “It is very strange that thay can leave, then come back, and then he’s put in at the top.
“It shows you the power Daniel Levy has got. He seems like a very good businessman and he’s a well thought of person in football. That can only be good for Spurs.
“He has worked his magic to keep Harry Kane. He said he wasn’t going, and it’s not often that owners and chairmen get their own way these things.
“He has had a really good summer because both of those things are massive. Fair play to him”
