Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has issued a message to supporters ahead of today’s final Premier League game of the season.
Spurs take to the field against Everton later this afternoon knowing that the destiny of a top four finish is in their hands and will be the fourth successive season in which they have finished in the Champions League qualification places.
Levy thanked the players and coaching staff for their professionalism in having to play at both Wembley and Stadium MK while work on the delayed 62,062 capacity seater stadium went beyond the original opening date of September.
He described the current season as one of the best in the club’s history after Mauricio Pochettino guided them to an unpreditended first Champions League final where they will face Liverpool in Madrid on June 1st.
He also thanked supporters for their involvement in making this season one which will certainly live in the memory of lilywhites all around the world.
In a statement on the official Spurs site, Levy said: “Dear suppporter,
“What a journey it continues to be!
“We are near the end of a season that will live long in our memories for so very many reasons. Moments we could only dream of that have now become reality.
“We started the season back at Wembley while we overcame delays to our new home. A period that also saw us host a domestic cup game at Milton Keynes. Mauricio, his coaching staff and the players simply got on with the task in hand and were ultimate professionals. They have my total respect.
“Six weeks ago we came home after a long and difficult journey. None of us will ever forget that emotional night here against Crystal Palace, when Premier League football returned to N17 as we opened the doors and turnstiles of our amazing new stadium.
“Today we have our last Premier League match of the season and the opportunity to end our home campaign on a high with a win which could elevate us to third place in the Premier League.
“Securing a top four spot to give us Champions League football for a fourth successive season is in itself something of which to be immensely proud.
“But today is not our last game of the campaign. Heroic performances against Manchester City and Ajax have taken us to a Champions League Final.
“Even before the incredible events of Wednesday night in Amsterdam, this campaign has been one of the most epic in the Club’s history.
“I am delighted for Mauricio and the team – it is so well deserved and evidence of the truly amazing spirit we have within this squad. I hope they realise the total joy and exhilaration they have given us fans. We are so proud of them all.
“To reach the final against Liverpool on 1 June is something we have all achieved together. Everyone contributes to a team – staff, players, management and fans. No one person can do this alone, it’s the strength of everyone pulling together in the same direction which brings success and I thank each and every one who is part of this team including the millions of our fans around the world.
“We dare to dream and we want nothing more than to bring the Champions League Trophy to North London.
“It’s been unbelievable and now it’s time to believe.
“After all… To Dare is to Do.
