Daniel Levy

Why are Tottenham fans set to protest against Daniel Levy?

Tottenham Hotspur fans have continued to protest against their owners, the ENIC group and chairman Daniel Levy in the wake of a seemingly unsuccessful transfer window.

Many protesters organised a walkout, expected to take place in the 22nd minute of Tottenham’s game against Man City this Sunday.

This, according to Tottenham fans, is to signify 22 years of failure from ENIC and Levy.

Chants of “We want Levy out” can be heard throughout the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in every Spurs match, win or loss.

The feeling at the club has become increasingly toxic as Antonio Conte’s side slumped down the table whilst arch-rivals Arsenal are top.

Despite the slump, Spurs have failed to strengthen their defence during the window which seems to be the root cause of Tottenham’s poor form.

To add to the toxicity, this season is the first in which Arsenal have beaten Spurs in both meetings since 2013/14.

Tottenham ended last season on a high with Conte, however the shocking appointment of Nuno Espírito Santo is still fresh in the memory of Spurs supporters.

Under Levy’s watch Spurs have won just two trophies, and haven’t won silverware since 2008 despite appointing world class managers such as Jose Mourinho, Conte and Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs have also failed to win trophies with world class players such as Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min and World Cup winning captain, Hugo Lloris.

Levy’s failures have been off the pitch as well as on it, such as the delay in building Tottenham’s new stadium which resulted in a season of playing outside of north London at Wembley.

The announcement of Spurs being part of the European Super League also played a huge part in alienating Levy from the Spurs fans.

Not all of Levy’s tenure has been a failure however, as before his role Spurs were a mid-table club with an average position of tenth.

In the last decade under Levy’s watch, Spurs have become a Champions League regular and even reached a Champions League final.

While Levy’s tenure may end in disgrace if the protesters have their way, his reign has seen Tottenham become one of the world’s biggest clubs.
