The Lowdown: Levy news dropped…
Coming out in the last two days, some big news has emerged in regards to the Spurs chief.
Indeed, as officially announced, he has now been voted on to the European Club Association board to represent Premier League football – reportedly beating Manchester City executive Ferran Soriano to the post (The Athletic).
The 59-year-old is set to replace Manchester United’s Ed Woodward in the role.
The Latest: Hutton hails Levy…
Speaking to FI, former Lilywhites defender Hutton has had his say and believes the appointment is ‘something that could work’.
The ex-Scotland international also branded Levy a ‘shrewd’ and ‘fantastic’ businessman.
“I think everybody knows Daniel Levy, how shrewd a businessman he is,” explained Hutton.
“Sometimes it can be his way or the highway and he sticks to his guns. That’s always been the way that he is.
“He doesn’t back down for anybody and obviously, they like what they see. I totally understand it. He’s a fantastic businessman and he probably ticks all the boxes.
“Sometimes it’s good for a change, a fresh face in there with new ideas and different opinions.
“So I think that’s something that could work and I’m sure he will relish the task.”
The Verdict: Big moment for Levy?
While he is controversial and a split figure among Spurs supporters, this comes as a big moment for Levy personally just five months after the European Super League scandal.
Now gifted a major new role at the pinnacle of European football, the Tottenham supremo has dealt with club protests, real financial concerns and a rocky few months on the pitch with one of their longest ever searches for a new manager.
Levy must now make the most of his new position of power as he also aims to help Spurs steadily grow into a football powerhouse.
