Tottenham chairman Levy: Champions League qualification ideal for new stadium

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy hailed the club's guarantee of a shot at the Champions League as perfect timing to boost their new stadium plans.

Spurs want to build a new £400million, 56,000-seat ground to replace their ageing White Hart Lane home, and making the Champions League group stage would bring in more than £20million in extra income next season.

Levy said: "I wouldn't want to put a price on it but it is great news for the club, particularly as we are in the throes of considering building a new stadium.

"I always knew Harry was a great manager. Clearly he has made a great contribution, but credit also needs to go to the team."
