Some Spurs have shown no sympathy towards the club and Daniel Levy on social media after reports emerged that the Lilywhites could lose around £83 million if the Premier League season is voided.

Many clubs in England, and around the world, are facing financial uncertainty due to the coronavirus shutdown.

Daniel Levy announced late last month that Tottenham would be furloughing their non-playing staff and cutting their wages by 20 per cent in order to save jobs.

Football Insider claimed that Tottenham could stand to lose £83m in broadcasting and matchday revenue if the season is not completed.

Some Spurs fans on social media have shown no remorse towards Levy, with some claiming that the Spurs chairman deserved it after his decision to furlough the staff.

A few others worried that this might mean a reduced transfer budget for the foreseeable future, while some even insisted that it would be preferable to have the season voided as it would mean Spurs could get Champions League football next season.


Spurs Web Opinion

I do think the season will eventually have to be voided as I can’t see how it can be completed before the end of June. However, it is not just Tottenham who will be losing out on substantial revenue but also every other club in the Premier League. Some clubs will be in much bigger trouble financially than we would be if the season is called off.
