Daniel Levy is said to be considering utilising some of the Tottenham Hotspur ground staff who have not been furloughed to work at his private Hertfordshire estate during the COVID-19 epidemic.
The Telegraph claim that Spurs chairman would pay for the private use of staff himself rather than with their salary at the North London club
The pitch at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium along with the surfaces at the club’s Hotspur Way training facility still need to be attended to by the ground staff with Levy looking to utilise their services during the quiet periods as a result of no fixtures currently being played and all sides being unable to train as a group due to social distancing measures.
Levy has attracted strong criticism from both inside out outside of the game, including former boss Harry Redknapp (The Sun) after he announced last Tuesday through the club’s official website that he decided that 550 employees will be paid 80 per cent of their salary during April and May, with the Government’s furlough scheme utilised where possible.
