SafeBettingSites have revealed how much various clubs around Europe paid have paid in wages to their players over the course of the 2019/20 season and unsurprisingly, Tottenham come out quite favourably in comparison with some of the European giants.

Spurs do not feature in the top ten highest spenders on wages across Europe last season, although their North London rivals, Arsenal feature in 10th place having spent $6.27million on player salaries last year.

In fact, the report reveals that the Lilywhites only spent the seventh-highest on wages among the Premier League sides last year at $5.18million.

Apart from the other members of the so-called ‘big six’, Everton also spent more than the Lilywhites did on salaries throughout last season.

Barcelona and Real Madrid spent the most across Europe’s top five leagues while Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool are some way clear of the rest in the Premier League.

The report reveals that Tottenham had the 13th highest wage bill across Europe over the course of the campaign.

Spurs Web Opinion

The fact that we are pretty close to the top ten biggest spenders in Europe suggests that the conventional wisdom that Spurs do not pay big salaries does not hold true anymore. If anything, Daniel Levy deserves credit for the way he has managed to keep the wage bill under control despite regularly offering pay rises to our stars. Our sustainable wage bill has put us in much better financial health than some of our rivals on the back of the pandemic.
