Daniel Levy tops highest paid Prem execs list with staggering £7m last season

first_img“We have seen some of the biggest clubs in the world such as Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus take steps to reduce their costs.”Yesterday, having already taken steps to reduce costs, we ourselves made the difficult decision – in order to protect jobs – to reduce the remuneration of all 550 non-playing directors and employees for April and May by 20% utilising, where appropriate, the Government’s furlough scheme.”We shall continue to review this position.”2 Spurs’ new stadium opened in April 2019Credit: Getty – Contributor DANIEL LEVY was the highest paid executive in the Premier League last season, pocketing a staggering £7million.This figure comprised his £4m salary, as well as a £3m bonus for the completion of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium… despite it opening late.2 Daniel Levy pocketed £7m last seasonCredit: Getty Images – GettyManchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was previously thought to be the highest paid Prem chief.The 48-year-old received a salary of £3.16m for the 2018-19 campaign… but Levy’s pay for the same year has blown that figure out of the water.Levy’s basic “remuneration” came to an eye-watering £4m – before bonuses.The total amount paid out to board members for completion of the new stadium came to £3.9m – with Levy pocketing £3m of that – taking his annual earnings up to £7m in total.Tottenham Hotspur Stadium opened eight months later than planned in April 2019, when Spurs beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in the Premier League.The news of Levy’s earnings comes as part of Spurs’ declarations for the financial year – which saw them bag a £68.6m profit after tax.This figure was bolstered by the £108.4m earned from the team’s unlikely run to the Champions League final under Mauricio Pochettino last season.But it’s actually a decrease of £45m on the previous year.Levy has today also announced that Spurs have reduced the salaries of all 550 of the club’s non-playing staff by 20 per cent in line with the government’s furlough scheme, as they seek to combat the crippling financial effects of the coronavirus pandemic.The Club’s operations have effectively ceased, some of our fans will have lost their jobs and most will be worried about their future.Daniel LevyThe 58-year-old wrote in a statement on Spurs’ website: “We may be the eighth largest Club in the world by revenue according to the Deloitte survey but all that historical data is totally irrelevant as this virus has no boundaries.”The Club’s operations have effectively ceased, some of our fans will have lost their jobs and most will be worried about their future.”Our sponsors will be concerned about their businesses and our media partners have no certainty when we may play games again or whether we will be allowed to play in front of our fans.”In the meantime, the Club has an annual cost base running into hundreds of millions of pounds.LATEST SPURS NEWSHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrong Gary Lineker admits Harry Kane is right to think about his future at Tottenhamlast_img read more

Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin) will assume the role of Chairman of the Housing and Insurance Subcommittee for the 115th Congress.“I look forward to working alongside my colleagues to pass laws that promote a dynamic economy with more jobs, higher wages and greater economic freedom for all Americans,” Hensarling said. “Our committee will continue to develop bold, forward-looking plans that hold Washington and Wall Street accountable, end taxpayer-funded bailouts and protect consumer choice.”Luetkemeyer served as the Chairman of the Housing and Insurance Subcommittee during the 114th Congress. In July 2016, a Luetkmeyer-sponsored bill, H.R. 3700, better known as the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act, became law. The bill includes reforms to FHA’s restrictions on condo financing and helps veterans achieve homeownership. It passed unanimously in both the House and the Senate.In November 2016, the Housing and Insurance Subcommittee held a hearing examined the nation’s housing appraisal system, determining that complex and outdated system results in more lengthy closings and increased costs to consumers and is therefore in need of an overhaul. Luetkemeyer declared in that hearing that as far as the “regulatory regime surrounding appraisals, it seems we’re stuck in 1989.”He is taking over as Chairman of the Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee for Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas), who announced in September 2015 that he would not be seeking re-election.“It is a great honor to be named the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit,” Luetkemeyer said. “Helping small businesses, families, and consumers access affordable credit is critical to growing our economy and I look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure all Americans have access to the tools they need to reach financial independence.”Blaine LuetkmeyerSean DuffyAccording to Luetkemeyer’s website, the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit “oversees all financial regulators including the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, the National Credit Union Administration, and the Comptroller of the Currency. It also oversees all matters pertaining to consumer credit including the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, the Consumer Credit Protection Act, and overall access to financial services. The Subcommittee is also charged with overseeing the safety and soundness of the U.S. banking system.”Duffy will take over Luetkmeyer’s former position as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance. According to Duffy’s website, the jurisdiction of that Subcommittee includes the National Flood Insurance Program, public and private housing, urban development, the Rural Housing Service, Government-Sponsored Enterprises, Federal Housing Agency, Federal Housing Administration, and HUD.“Many elements of our housing market need to be made to work for all Wisconsinites—rural families, in particular, have been left behind. I look forward to working with Dr. Carson to bring much needed change to HUD and to improve housing for all. I’ll defend Wisconsin taxpayers as we reform National Flood Insurance, the FHA, and other programs. I’ll also ensure that the Wisconsin insurance industry, an important engine of our state’s economy, has a strong voice in Congress.”Click here to view the complete leadership list for the House Financial Services Committee.
