Chairman's delight at an 'amazing achievement'

Chairman Daniel Levy has expressed his delight following our qualification for next season's Champions League.

Speaking at the Training ground this morning, Daniel said:

"It's an amazing achievement. It's something we've been dreaming of and striving for since I arrived at the Club and I'm pleased we've got there.

"We've worked hard and I'm pleased for Harry, all the players, the fans and everyone connected with the Club.

"The results this season speak for themselves. I couldn't single anyone out, it's been a team effort and we've got a fantastic squad of players here.

"We can now relish the prospect of competing in European football's elite competition for the first time. "

Daniel added: "This Club is nothing without our fans and I know Harry and the players all appreciate the contribution that they make, especially when it comes to a matchday - this is something they absolutely deserve."

He continued: "Tottenham Hotspur is already a Club recognised around the world but qualifying for the Champions League will enhance that status.

"I have never experienced it before, neither have our fans, nor have many of our players, so we're going to have fun.

"And the season isn't quite over so there is still a chance that we can finish third on the final day of the season to guarantee qualification for the group stages."

Qualification coincides with an exciting time off the pitch, with a new state-of-the-art training facility and proposed new stadium on the horizon.

"We've been working for years to achieve the combination of footballing success on the pitch with our two main capital projects.

"I'm delighted to say work on the new training ground is now well under way and will without doubt be one of the best in Europe.

"The stadium is something we have been working on for a number of years and I hope that, over the course of this year, we will have planning permission."
