“It was a clear message”Daniel Levy’s clear statement to Tottenham supporters ahead of Arsenal derby match

Daniel Levy has done more talking to Tottenham fans in the past couple of weeks than he has done in years as the supporters have been given some insight into his decisions.

The Spurs chairman spoke at a Fan Advisory Board meeting earlier this month, with the minutes at the weekend, then Levy appeared at the fans’ forum for a Q&A on Tuesday night at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before an interview with Bloomberg was published on Thursday.

In that interview, when asked about his future and selling a stake in the club, the Spurs chairman said in the interview: “I’ve got no real interest to leave Tottenham, but I have a duty to consider anything that anyone may want to propose. It’s not about me, it’s about what’s right for the club.”

He added: “We run this club as if it’s a public company. If anyone wants to make a serious proposition to the board of Tottenham we would consider it, along with our advisers, and if we felt it was in the interests of the club we would be open to anything.”

It was a clear message to his critics that Levy, who in a trust with members of his family own just under 30% of ENIC’s 86.58% controlling share in the club, is not looking to give up the reins of Spurs any time soon.

He admitted that the north London outfit had received offers over the years from the Middle East, Far East and the US, but “nothing has been put on our table that we felt has been in the interests of shareholders
