Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has been named the highest paid director in the Premier League last season in an analysis of all 20 teams' accounts.
Financial reports for the 2014/15 season have been disclosed by every team in last season's competition, revealing the 54-year-old was paid £2.6m by the club as Spurs finished fifth in the league.
Levy's pay was followed by an unnamed director at Manchester United who was paid £2.5m, Arsenal's chief executive Ivan Gazidis who made £2.29m and Chelsea's Ron Gourlay who received £1.96m, analysis from The Guardian revealed.
The English businessman has been chairman at White Hart Lane for 15 years and has led their £400m new stadium development plans.
Tottenham generated £196m turnover for the season, the sixth-highest in the league and nearly £100m less than Liverpool but £37m ahead of seventh-highest Newcastle.
Spurs' turnover is set to grow this season and next after manager Mauricio Pochettino guided them into the Champions League with a third-placed finish.
A report published by KPMG today named Tottenham as the 12th most valuable club in the world with an estimated value of £609m.
