A bid just for the hell of it
Karren Brady says Tottenham are crossing the line over their pitch for the London Olympic stadium.
In her diary for The Sun, Karren wrote: “Spurs have slipped into the AEG bid for residency at the Olympic Stadium.
“Their chairman Daniel Levy recently called me ‘one of his closest friends’. But he hasn’t mentioned the counter-bid. However, he wasn’t at our Saturday match and hasn’t been answering the phone to me.
“So perhaps that’s why. If Daniel fancies going into the Irons’ Den – Newham borough – that’s up to him.
“No argument with competition but most importantly, he’s forgotten the unwritten Premier League rule preventing clubs moving from one borough to another. But that, I guess, is in the detail.
“Last night Haringey Council changed tack and granted Spurs planning permission to develop White Hart Lane, which, I suppose, gives him two irons in the fire.
“The difference between the bids is we want the stadium to be our home. It’s not a back-up plan.”
