“Far be it for me giving the chairman lots and lots of credit, but I have to say that their structure is fantastic because he sees the future.

“He sees by future by giving these lads that money with five-year contracts that they are very happy with at the time. They are extremely happy otherwise they wouldn't sign it.”

Levy is one of the most shrewd businessmen in football at the moment and is a key reason why Tottenham are doing so well.

Spurs have quite a rigid wage structure, but that is working at the moment for the North London outfit.

The players seem to be happy playing for Tottenham at the moment, and the fans should be pleased.
