VIDEO: Spurs owner Levy accepts AVB’s challenge and faces the ice bucket

Tottenham Hotspur owner Daniel Levy has taken the ice bucket challenge.

Tottenham hotspur owner Daniel Levy has accepted former employee Andre Villas-Boas’ challenge and faced the ice bucket to help raise awareness for ALS.

Current Zenit Saint Petersburg boss Villas-Boas was in the managerial hotseat at White Hart Lane before being sacked midway through last season - despite having the highest percentage of league wins of any manager during the club’s Premier League era.

Not one to hold a grudge, AVB sportingly challenged his former employer Levy to take up the challenge and the Spurs owner duly replied before throwing out an intriguing nomination of his own.

He said: “First of all I’m going to thank Andre for this wonderful nomination on behalf of charity ALS. I’m definitely going to nominate somebody who owes this club a lot, and that’s the president of Real Madrid – Florentino Perez.

Despite the controversy of yet another managerial change this summer, Daniel Levy’s latest choice as coach Mauricio Pochettino has made a fine start to life in North London – taking maximum points from Premier League games against London-rivals West Ham United and Queens Park Rangers.

The ALS Association helps encourage scientific research into the incurable neurodegenerative disease Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, and you can find out more about it and donate by clicking here.
