Spurs players 'stunned' to learn Daniel Levy's pay

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is reportedly the highest paid director in the Premier League after club accounts showed he took an income of over £6million (€6.88m) for the year ending 30 June 2017.

The figure - an increase from £2.84million the previous year - is believed to be higher than most of the club's best-paid players. The Times reported on Wednesday that the players were "stunned" to learn what their chairman took home, at a time when they were told there were salary restraints.
