Darragh MacAnthony shares his experience of dealing with Tottenham's Daniel Levy

Daniel Levy

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has praised Spurs' Daniel Levy.

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has taken to Twitter to state that he believes Daniel Levy and Tottenham are 'different class' do deal with.

Posh owner MacAnthony has always been one of the more open figures in football, often sharing information with fans on Twitter and responding to questions about other clubs and chairmen.

Today, MacAnthony was asked by one fan what it's like to do business with Tottenham and their chairman Daniel Levy - and with quotes that may surprise some, the Irishman said that Levy and Spurs are 'different class'.

Levy has often been seen as a tough business man and hard to deal with, with some notable figures criticising him over the years.

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson claimed that dealing with Levy was more painful than his hip replacement, as quoted by the London Evening Standard, and many Spurs fans have criticised him for his transfer strategy.

Peterborough and Spurs haven't done many deals in recent years, though winger Kenny McAvoy did join the Posh on loan last season, meaning MacAnthony will have had regular dialogue with Spurs and Levy during that deal.

After plenty of criticism, it will be great for Tottenham fans to see some real praise for Levy, especially after the whole summer debacle over trying to sign Saido Berahino from West Bromwich Albion, which saw Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace aim thinly-veiled digs at Levy on the club's official website.
