The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) have now pleaded with the club to reverse their decision regarding wage cuts and furloughs.
Daniel Levy announced earlier this week that the club would be cutting the wages of all non-playing staff by 20%, utilising the government’s furlough scheme.
The Spurs chairman came in for heavy criticism on social media from some fans for his decision while the supporters’ trust initially urged the 58-year-old to make a “further personal contribution” in order to protect the most vulnerable employees.
However, it looks as if the criticism has fallen on deaf ears with the Telegraph reporting that Levy is determined to push ahead with the furlough and wage-cut.
The THST took to Twitter to send a public plea to the club, warning them that the reputation of Tottenham Hotspur was on the line.
THST posted the following message through their official Twitter account:
We have been saying consistently @SpursOfficial – pause and rethink. We are now saying it clearly and in public – do not further damage the Club’s reputation, listen to your fans.

If Levy does not reverse his decision, it could perhaps be his biggest mistake during his tenure as Spurs chairman as there will certainly be a backlash from the fans. Unfortunately, given the Tottenham chief’s single-minded and hard-nosed nature, I don’t expect him to go back on his call.
