Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust hits back at club’s proposal for fan representative on the board
According to the Daily Mail, the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust has hit back at the club for their proposal of including a fan representative on the board in a way that does not really give them any power.
Following the debacle of the European Super League, Tottenham issued a statement earlier this week in which they unreservedly apologised for their actions. In addition, the club put forward a proposal wherein they would be creating an advisory panel comprised of elected representatives from different fan groups, the chair of which would be appointed as a non-executive board member.
THST, though, has slammed the club’s proposal as it had not been discussed with the fans while the move would not really given any power to the fan representative.
“The dogged stance of the Trust and the wider supporter base has forced the Club to concede the principle that fans must be represented at Board level, and to adopt some of our specific suggestions.
“But announcing this without consultation on detail is not a promising start. And the measures set out in the Club’s statement do not give fan representatives any real power.”
THST has repeatedly called for the resignation of the current board, including chairman Daniel Levy, in the aftermath of the European Super League. However, a meeting is yet to take place between the club and the Trust, but one could be on the horizon.
“Fans are not convinced that the current Board or owners do know that “the heartbeat of the Club is success on the pitch”.
