Daniel Levy brilliantly shuts down reporter for strange top-four question

Tottenham Hotspur have come on leaps and bounds under the stewardship of Mauricio Pochettino in the past five years.

Not only did the Argentine lead Spurs to their first-ever Champions League Final last year, but he has also boasted four top-four finishes in a row in the Premier League.

Up against the likes of Man City, Man United, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Arsenal, and the spending power that comes with them, this is a mightily impressive achievement.

Spurs even managed to scrape a fourth spot last season despite having the CL final to contend with and having not spent a penny all year.

In a press conference today about Tottenham’s new deal with sponsor AIA, Daniel Levy was addressing the media to answer any questions.

One reporter decided to pose a rather odd and insulting query to Mr Levy, asking if the new deal would help Spurs move from a top-six club to a regular top-four club.

Levy shut the journalist down brilliantly by retorting (Football London): “I actually thought we were a top-four club for the last four years? But obviously, as part of our strategy, we want a leading global brand and AIA is a brand we’re very proud to be associated with.”
