Daniel Levy and Tottenham directors bag massive pay rise despite fan unrest

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has awarded himself a £500,000 pay rise despite unrest among the club’s fans, according to the Telegraph.

Based on Tottenham’s latest accounts for the year ending June 2022, the club’s directors received over £3 million more than their pay from last year.

Levy earned £3.265 million in 2022, compared to £2.698m the year before. Spurs’ directors pocketed £6.773m, up from £4m the year prior.

However, those numbers are small compared to what Levy pocketed in June 2019 following the completion of the club’s stadium.

The 61-year-old earned £4m before taking a £3m bonus for the stadium works. These figures will only serve to infuriate the club’s fans.

The fans are angry for several reasons. Their trophy drought since 2008 will continue, with the club looking unlikely to challenge for any title this season.

They hired serial winner Antonio Conte, but things do not look like they are improving. There are worries that the Italian manager could leave at the end of the campaign.

Top striker Harry Kane could also be on the move this summer with no signs of Spurs winning silverware. Bayern Munich and Manchester United are interested in signing him.

Levy has been facing fan chants to leave all season despite them sitting fourth in the Premier League. Spurs also remain in the Champions League and FA Cup.

Fans are frustrated with the club’s penny-pinching. And even when they sign players for big money, they have not been successful.

Tottenham have six directors, including Fabio Paratici, who is still waiting to see whether he will serve a ban for financial manipulation at Juventus.

Another director is chief commercial officer Todd Kline. Despite joining the club two years ago, he is yet to secure a stadium naming rights deal.

The other Tottenham directors are executive director Donna-Maria Cullen, operations and finance director Matthew Collecott, director of football administration and governance Rebecca Caplehorn, and non-executive director Jonathan Turner.
