Photo: A look back at Daniel Levy’s vision for the club in 2001 – was he a man of his word

Daniel Levy

Rewind to December 2000 and chairman Alan Sugar sold over half of his stake in the Tottenham Hotspur football club to sports and media group Enic for £21.9m (Telegraph).

The takeover saw Sugar step down from his role in charge of the White Hart Lane club in February 2001 and was replaced at the top by the relatively unknown Daniel Levy.

A Spurs fan has shared an interesting interview which Levy held and revealed his future plans for the club.

Levy described himself as a ‘life-long Spurs fan, but not a fanatical fan’.   He also expressed his desire to change the facilities at White Hart Lane.


It makes for interesting reading to see what Levy’s vision for the club was when the interview was conducted over eighteen years ago.  While he has fulfilled some promises, he has certainly gone back on other areas of his ‘vision’.
