The Athletic have revealed that Daniel Levy has no intention of walking away from Tottenham despite increasing protests from some Spurs fans against the decision to sign up for the European Super League.
The threat of a Super League seems to have elapsed for the time being after 10 of the 12 clubs who signed up for the competition, including the Premier League’s ‘big six’, announced their withdrawal after a wave of fan protests.
However, some Spurs fans are not happy with the club’s decision to pull out of the competition alone, with the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust (THST) calling for the resignation of the entire Spurs executive board.
Football Insider even reported a few days ago that Spurs had already been put up for sale and that Joe Lewis could come under increasing pressure to sell the club after the Super League debacle thus potentially leaving Levy with a fight to keep his job.
However, The Athletic have now asserted that the North London club have not been put up for sale at the moment, suggesting that potential buyers might not be easy to find in a post-pandemic economy.
They also added that Levy, who has held his position as Spurs chairman for two decades, will not walkway from the club.

The club made a huge mistake by signing up for the Super League without consulting with the fans and it is understandable why THST expect heads to roll. However, fans calling for owners to “get out of the club” are incredibly naive.
The reality is that owners cannot just walk away from football clubs unless they find suitable investors who are willing to pay the billions that these clubs are worth.
Additionally, the only ones who would pay that kind of money to buy football clubs are business tycoons, who would also be looking for a return on investment.
In other words, they would be just like these owners as they would do everything they can to make as much money as possible. At least with Levy, we know that he cares about his legacy at Spurs unlike the Glazers or Stan Kronke.
