Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has spoken on the positive relationship he has with the club’s chairman Daniel Levy and how this connection can lead to success.

Since taking over at Spurs in November 2021, the Italian manager has transformed the team on the pitch. Conte led the Lilywhites to a top-four finish last season, and has made the North London side very hard to beat.

The changes at Tottenham are not confined to the field of play though. Spurs owner Daniel Levy is well known to be a tough negotiator and a frugal man when it comes to handling the club’s finances.

This reluctance to spend money to improve the squad has been a source of frustration for many fans in the past. With Conte at the helm though, Levy appears to have changed his way of thinking.

Spurs had a busy summer, bringing in seven new faces to add strength in depth to the playing squad. The type of players being brought in too, with experienced talent like Ivan Perisic, signals a different approach to Spurs’ usual transfer policy.

It seems Levy has been far more willing to back his manager and deliver exactly what Conte wants. In an interview with Sky Sports (Football Daily), Conte himself has spoken about this ‘connection’ he and Levy share.

He said: “I think every success is born from this connection. You need to have a big connection with the owner, with the Sporting Director. If there is great understanding, then you can work well.”


Spurs Web Opinion

There’s no doubting Daniel Levy’s business acumen, and while he has operated intelligently over the years, it’s very refreshing to see Tottenham Hotspur finally start to show a little bit of ambition this summer.

With a happy Antonio Conte, success will surely follow for Spurs at some point in the near future. Levy just needs to keep developing that relationship, and give Conte the tools he needs.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. DL doesn’t get enough respect for the paradigm shift he has achieved at Spurs, though no argument that he is at least 10 years behind his initial schedule.
    When Enic took over …Spurs were mid table fodder and fundamentally broke with busted down infrastructure and very much trading on past glories.
    Now that Enic have all the cockerels in a row …. I don’t doubt for a moment that there will be more budget available to compete for the best playing and management talent in the game.
    The media love to beat up spurs for not having won anything for years and while that is certainly true … there are a hatful of former glory clubs that haven’t won anything nor even looked like getting anywhere close to the 3 or 4 moneyed teams that have dominated the premier league.
    Though now with the influx of more big money owners putting more clubs on a competitive footing the hegemony of MU, Chelsie and of late MC will become less of a sure thing which can only be good for football.
