Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has paid tribute to Daniel Levy after the chairman completed twenty years of service at the North London club.
After Joe Lewis’ ENIC became the club’s majority shareholder in 2001 replacing Alan Sugar, Levy took up the mantle as the Premier League’s youngest chairman.
Levy had previously spent five years at Glasgow Rangers as a non-executive director of the Scottish giants.
During his time at Tottenham, Levy has overseen the transformation of the club’s facilities including the construction of the Hotspur Way training complex in 2012 along with the state of the art stadium which opened in 2019.
Redknapp praised his former boss, claiming that he has transformed the club both on and off the field having become Champions League regulars under Mauricio Pochettino.
Levy now holds the title of being the longest-serving chairman in the Premier League and will be certainly hoping that the club can end their thirteen-year wait for silverware.
He told talkSPORT when asked about Levy’s impact: “It’s a massive contribution,”
“He delivered an incredible new stadium – it’s just amazing.
“The training ground is as good as anything in the country.
“It’s been massive steps forwards since he arrived; people forget, when I was at West Ham we finished above Tottenham three years running [in 1997/98, 98/99 and 99/00].
“They may do it again, but you look where Tottenham have gone in the last ten years and whatever, they play Champions League football and are always looking for top four.
“Daniel has done an amazing job.”
