‘Money can’t buy suc­cess’

Daily Express - - FOOTBALL: BARCLAYS PREMIER LEAGUE -

FROM BACK PAGE have to say we have un­der­achieved if you com­pare us with some of the other clubs.

“Martin Jol went for a job in­ter­view at New­cas­tle while he was em­ployed by us. And there were clearly some is­sues in the dress­ing room be­tween Juande and some of the play­ers. The ap­point­ments we made have to be a fac­tor. But it is not the sole fac­tor in terms of winning a game – of­ten it is luck or in­juries.

“Ul­ti­mately, my re­spon­si­bil­ity is to make sure that the club are in a sta­ble fi­nan­cial po­si­tion.”

Levy an­nounced Tot­ten­ham’s turnover went up by 11 per cent for the year end­ing in June and con­firmed the club are plan­ning to sell nam­ing rights of their pro­posed new 60,000-seat sta­dium.

He promised the fund­ing of the sta­dium will not af­fect new boss Harry Red­knapp’s trans­fer bud­get, but is not an­tic­i­pat­ing an ex­pen­sive Jan­uary. “Harry has a group of in­ter­na­tional play­ers that we be­lieve are very tal­ented,” said Levy. “In Jan­uary we will see lim­ited changes.”

MICHAEL DAW­SON has es­caped fur­ther sus­pen­sion for protest­ing about his red card at Stoke, but re­ceived a warn­ing as to his fu­ture con­duct.
