Tottenham Hotspur chief Daniel Levy has embarked on the ‘tough and uncertain’ season the club has endured before promising to bounce back next season.
The tracks have fallen below expectations this season, with long duty manager Mauricio Pochettino replacing Jose Mourinho. The club is in seventh place with two games to go.
The North London club will play their last home game of the season this afternoon as host of Leicester City, with a win in which Wolves jump sixth for their game against Crystal Palace tomorrow.

And in the last game schedule of the season, which has been made available to supporters for free, Levy has expressed his views on what was a turbulent campaign both on and off the pitch.
“I’m not sure if any of us could have foreseen how difficult and uncertain this season would end on and off the field,” he said.
“We’ve had road bumps on the field this season – like many other top clubs at different times – it was our turn this season.”

Levy added that he is confident that Mourinho can lead the club back to the rankings with an expected summer rebuild.
“We certainly haven’t seen the performance and results we all wanted every now and then and I know that Jose and his coaches will be working with us in the coming months to make sure we get to the ground before the start of next season.
“One thing you can be sure of is the continued ambition of everyone at this club to succeed on the field. At the moment we are playing until the last minute of this season to achieve the best possible finish and hopefully a European place. ‘
The club has also faced off-the-field affairs this season, with the Corona virus crisis causing shock waves through football.

Spurs had decided to use the government’s leave scheme for some non-working employees, announcing that 550 employees would take a 20% cut in an effort to protect jobs.
However, the club quickly reversed that decision after criticism from supporters.
“Football took a backseat because we supported the most needy,” Levy added. “It is a testament to human nature and spirit that everyone has adapted and maintained and the importance of community, always in the DNA of our club, was highlighted.
