Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has claimed that it makes him sick to see Arsenal on top of the Premier League table.
The Gunners have been magnificent this season. We’ve lost just three games all campaign, beaten almost every side in the division at least once, and if things go to plan, we will win the Premier League next month.
That would be an extraordinary achievement considering where Arsenal were at the end of last season.
Daniel Levy makes claim about Arsenal while talking about Tottenham
Arsenal are currently 21 points above Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League table. We are in with a great chance of winning silverware and it has to be said that we’ve been the best team in the country so far.
Spurs, on the other hand, have been awful. They are fifth in the table having lost 10 and drawn five of their 31 league games this season. They’ve sacked their manager too and could soon lose their best player.
Daniel Levy has had his say on the situation and he defended his work at the club despite constant criticism from fans. We couldn’t care less about that, but what caught our eye was his comments on Arsenal.
He told the Cambridge Union: “Am I happy that we haven’t won more than one trophy in the last 15 years? Absolutely not. But I also think that we’ve had some fantastic times, we’ve been in the Champions League a number of times.
“And despite the fact that I feel sick that there’s a club in north London (Arsenal) that’s a bit higher than us at this moment in time, if I look back over the last five years, we’ve also been above them. So that’s what happens.”
This just proves that every Tottenham season is dependent on how Arsenal fare.
If we were five points below Spurs right now, Antonio Conte would’ve still been their manager and their fans would be hailing him as the greatest thing since sliced bread – just like they did at the end of last season. But, since we’re above them, it’s a disastrous campaign.
Also, it’s funny how Levy uses the league table over the last five seasons to defend his club. To put things into perspective, Arsenal have been in transition, while Spurs have, for the most part, had a better squad with top-level managers at the helm.
Yet, we’ve won four trophies since 2017 – two FA Cups and two Community Shields – while Spurs have won… yep, you know the answer to that – absolutely nothing!
If you’re a Tottenham fan, you must be embarrassed by Levy’s comments.
