Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has released a statement in which he confirms that the club have taken the decision to cut the wages of all non-playing staff by 20% for this month and next.

The club will utilise the Government’s furlough scheme of 550 non-playing directors and employees

The furlough scheme allows an employer to claim up to 80% of a person’s wages with a maximum limit set at £2,500 per month. A process where staff become temporarily redundant but stay on the company payroll (BBC).

There was no mention within Levy’s statement on whether the playing staff are looking to offer a reduction on their substantial monthly wages which has seen the likes of Barcelona agree to take a 70% pay cut during Spain’s state of emergency to ensure that the club’s non-playing employees can collect 100 per cent of their salary (Daily Mail).

Star striker Harry Kane is the squad’s highest earner with a salary of around £200,000-a-week including bonuses following the six-year deal he signed in 2018 (Telegraph).
