It is coming up to Daniel Levy’s 20 year anniversary as Tottenham chairman and Jose Mourinho was unsurprisingly asked about the landmark in his press conference earlier today.
Levy took up the rue over at Tottenham following ENIC’s takeover from Alan Sugar back in 2001 and has made great strides in North London over the past two decades.
While going through plenty of managers, Levy has been a part of the journey that has seen Spurs climb from mid-table wannabes to Champions League finalists.
Not only have there been achievements on the pitch, but away from it too, with Spurs now boasting arguably the best training ground and stadium in the country.
Jose Mourinho has only been working with Levy for around a year and a half since taking over from Pochettino, but had plenty of nice words to say about the chairman.
However, he did not seem comfortable in commenting on Levy’s 20 years at the club, perhaps as he has not worked with the man for the entirety of his reign. In fact, he came up against him more often than not.
Mourinho said (Football London): “I always show respect to my boss and I’m not sure I’m comfortable answering that question.
“All I can say is that for one and a half years our professional relationship is good and he tries to give the best conditions for us and I try to give the best from myself and demand the best from everyone around me to make the club more successful and better.
“I don’t feel very comfortable to comment apart from saying I have the utmost respect for him.”
