Tottenham deny contacting European Commission over the Olympic Stadium

Tottenham have denied sending an anonymous e-mail complaining to the European Commission over the Olympic Stadium decision, Sky News reports.

West Ham United beat Spurs to the Olympic Stadium rights following the 2012 Olympics in London, but their bid collapsed after an anonymous e-mail expressed concerns relating to the loan supplied to the Hammers by Newham General Council. A Spurs spokesman said: ‘It was not us. The reason it wasn’t us was because it would be totally illogical to go to a European court at a time when we were engaged in a legal process in the UK’.

The Olympic Stadium may now remain in public company and be leased out to any interested party, but West Ham are prepared to make a move back for the stadium to ensure it stays in their hands.
