The annual financial report of Premier League outfit Tottenham has been released on the club’s official website this evening, with one notable payee having since led to widespread discussion online.
On the up
Spurs, who’s victory over Chelsea at the weekend looks likely to have secured the North Londoners a key financial windfall in as good as confirming their place in next season’s Champions League, endured yet another trophy-less campaign last season.
However, many have pointed to the massive improvements being made by Mauricio Pochettino’s men over the last 18 months, with the club’s performances versus the likes of Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus in this season’s Champions League proof that the capital outfit are beginning to establish themselves as a genuine European heavyweight.
The recent improvements of Tottenham, while partly down to the growth of the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and more, can also be attributed to the stellar work done by chairman Daniel Levy, with the Englishman having secured deals for the likes of Davinson Sanchez, Lucas Moura and more over the last 12 months.
And, as showcased by the release of Spurs’ financial figures for 2017/18 this evening, Levy’s work has certainly not gone unrewarded, with the chairman of the North Londoners having seen his wages more than doubled when compared to 2016:
#THFC highest paid director, almost certainly Daniel Levy, received total remuneration of £6.0m in 2016/17 (up from £2.8m the previous season). Wow.

Daniel Levy’s pay at Tottenham Hotspur increased by £3.17million to £6.013m last year.
Several of the club’s (relatively) underpaid starters will be interested in those numbers… #THFChttps://t.co/8Nh2rqrd3D pic.twitter.com/giXyvTe515
