Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has told the Enfield Independent he feels the club’s first team and academy players are the most important assets at the club.
Levy has also told the paper that he feels the future of the club is based around being able to deliver teams in the best possible condition.
“The club's first team and academy players are our most important assets,” said Levy.
“The long term future of the club rests on being able to deliver teams that is in peak mental and physical condition.”
“Everything the club does, from the academy upwards, is geared to achieving success on the pitch.”
Levy’s comments came after Tottenham received approval to build a new player lodge which will improve the facilities available to the club’s current and future players.
It’s a very exciting time to be a Tottenham fan.
The club have just secured a place in the League Cup final against Chelsea, Levy is confident in the benefits of the future facilities at the club and a new, bigger stadium is on the way.
The chairman seems determined to give Mauricio Pochettino the best possible chance of taking the side forward and achieving more consistent results out on the pitch.
Things will only be improved further if Spurs can secure Champions League football for next season, which will expose the club to greater finances, a better standard of transfer targets and the ability to renegotiate current commercial agreements.
