Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern will be jubilant after their victory against Chelsea last weekend, ending a 28-year run of being unable to win at Stamford Bridge and doing it in convincing fashion.
With the three points, Spurs have put themselves in a good position to ensure Champions League football next season just as they plan to head to their new stadium. One person who may have enjoyed the success of the club more than others though is Daniel Levy, according to a report in the Daily Mail.
The media outlet claims the chairman is now the highest paid in the Premier League after seeing his salary increase from £2.8million to £6m, which equates to £115,000-a-week, £5,000 more than Harry Kane.
It is believed Levy’s new deal includes a backdated pay rise and a bonus after the club produced historic figures. Due to their Champions League adventure last year, the club made £306.3m in total revenue for the season, meaning a return of almost £100m more than 2016.
The Spurs locals in the Tavern will react with mixed opinions of the news that Levy is the highest paid chairman. They will be pleased with the rise due to what he has been able to achieve with the club in terms of a new stadium, however, some may be cautious that he earns more than his star players on the pitch each week.
Hopefully, he puts some of that money into paying top players to remain part of Mauricio Pochettino’s project in N17.
