Super League rehab: Levy, Antonello and Gil join ECA board

September 8 – Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy (pictured) has been voted on to the executive board of the European Club Association, just five months after his club were one of 12 founder members of the aborted breakaway European Super League.

Levy will represent the Premier League and is a numerical replacement for Manchester United’s Ed Woodward, the outgoing United executive vice-chairman.

In a shake-up of the ECA board, Levy will be joined by Inter Milan’s Alessandro Antonello and Atletico’s Miguel Angel Gil, whose clubs were also part of the Super League which quickly collapsed in April amid global outrage.

They were among nine founder clubs who were formally readmitted to the ECA last month after they resigned from the Super League project.

Levy reportedly was preferred by Premier League clubs as their representative over Manchester City CEO Ferran Soriano who had also been vying to replace Woodward.

Woodward was also the ECA’s representative on UEFA’s Professional Football Strategy Council, although it is yet to be seen if Levy will assume this position, too.
