speaking to Football InsiderWenham has now heaped praise on Levy for a ‘game changer’ which will also have hugely contributed to the club’s on-field investment recently.
Indeed, the Spurs insider‘Claimed that Tottenham’s marquee new stadium being open for a full season will have had a huge effect on the club’s finances.
Wenham explained: “Tottenham’s finances now we have had that full season of the stadium being open to fans, this is a game changer.
“This is why you are seeing money available at the level it is. This is why we will continue to make big signings this summer.
“Even before [the pandemic] we found ourselves in the top-ten European clubs in terms of money. We had overtaken Arsenal already but that gap is going to become mammoth in the coming years.
“Tottenham took more from their club shop than Burnley took in gate receipts last season. These are staggering numbers and it’s only going to get bigger.
“We still have the naming rights deal to come. Tottenham have, and credit to Levy and the board, organically pushed themselves beyond what seemed unimaginable 15 or so years ago without Russian or Saudi money.

Once Levy and co find a sponsorship agreement for the stadium naming rights, the sky may well be the limit in terms of Tottenham and their finances, especially if Conte can maintain their place in the top four domestically.
