Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has been voted onto the executive board of the European Club Association.

Levy and Manchester City CEO Ferran Soriano had been vying to replace Ed Woodward on the ECA board after Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman stepped down from his position in April.

According to The Athletic, The Spurs chairman won support from Premier League clubs including United, Liverpool and Arsenal, while Soriano had received support from Chelsea as well as the Spanish clubs.

The ECA have now confirmed that Levy will be the Premier League representative on the board while Inter Milan CEO Alessandro Antonello and Atletico Madrid CEO Miguel Angel Gil will represent the Serie A and La Liga respectively.

This announcement comes just a few months after 12 clubs from across the continent, including Spurs, Inter and Atletico, tried to form a breakaway Europen Super League before being forced to abandon the idea after major protests from fans.
