Spurs fans are fairly split about how the ENIC Group have run the club since buying the majority shares in Tottenham back in 2001. However, some facts are indisputable – Tottenham are now far more competitive on the field than they were then, the club regularly compete in the Champions League, have one of the best training facilities in the country and will soon have one of the best stadiums in Europe.
The club is now entering a critical phase in its development as it will move into the new stadium and will have to pay off a debt of £637 million that it has incurred due to the escalated building costs.
With teams around Spurs investing heavily into the squad, there are fears among fans that Spurs could be overtaken by the other top 6 clubs. The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ trust raised this concern along with several others when they recently sat down with the Tottenham board for a meeting.
The notes from the meeting have now been published and in that Daniel Levy reiterates that the club have managed to develop sustainability due to the investments made into the training facility and the stadium, which will leave the club in a very strong position financially in the long run.
The Tottenham chairman also said that all the foundations have been put in place to make Spurs one of the biggest clubs in the world and that the aim is to make Tottenham regular contenders for the Champions League.
So despite the doom and gloom owing to the club’s recent results, this is yet another reminder to fans that this is a great time to be supporting Spurs as the club is still growing.
