Daniel Levy says he has «no real interest» in leaving Tottenham Hotspur but has a duty to listen to any proposals that come in to invest in the club.
The Spurs chairman has been at the club for 23 years and has overseen the building of the club's stadium, its training complex as well as highs like the Champions League final appearance in 2019. However, he has also drawn criticism from sections of the Tottenham fanbase, with protests at times against his decisions and the club have won just the one trophy — the league cup in 2008 — under his watch.
The normally-publicity shy Levy has had a busy couple of weeks of speaking with a meeting with the Fan Advisory Board a fortnight ago, undergoing a Q&A at the fans' forum this week and now he has been talking to business media outlet Bloomberg.
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.»
Levy and members of his family own just under 30% of ENIC's 86.58% controlling share in the club and 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».
