Spurs players lose financially if UCL qualification fails

According to The Daily Mail our players will miss out on lucrative bonuses if they blow their chance to qualify for the Champions League.

The majority of the Spurs squad have big performance-related bonuses included in their contracts which would entitle them to more cash, depending on how well the team performs in Europe’s elite club competition.

The bonuses increase depending on how far the club progress in the competition starting from the point of qualification, and these huge premiums ate now at stake for Tottenham’s players will add extra spice to what is gearing up to be a nail-biting race for Champions League qualification.

We looked nailed on to finish in the top four but our faltering league form has opened the door for Chelsea to steal a place compounded by our shock loss at West Bromwich on Saturday, together with Chelsea’s win over Liverpool on Sunday, has seen the Blues cut our lead to two points.

Chelsea will go fourth on Wednesday if they beat Huddersfield and we lose at home to Newcastle.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Stating the Obvious really – We know how it works regarding points and fourth place. Thanks for waste of a read though.

    • A little harsh Andy. Spurs apparently have the most lucrative bonus scheme in the PL. Some of our rather more gullible fans focus on the headline weekly pay versus some of our rivals offerings. It pays to remind them that that is not the whole picture.

      It also begs the question, why are so many players looking so “couldn’t care less” at such a crucial time. After all the hard work versus Liverpool, Man U, Arsenal and Chelsea are they really so “couldn’t care less”?

      If they are really so overplayed (as some fans would have it) heaven help them and their teams in the World Cup.
