Daniel Levy took the decision on earlier this week to announce that he handing a 20 per cent pay cut to 550 of the club’s non-playing staff for April and May (Spurs official).
Levy has utilised the government’s furlough scheme in some cases while the club’s playing staff continue to receive their full wages.
The Daily Telegraph have revealed that staff only found out about the chairman’s decision 30 minutes before it was announced.
Levy sent out an internal email at 10 am ahead of the controversial 10.30 am announcement.
The decision has been met with widespread criticism including that of former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp who has blasted Levy’s actions (The Sun).
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe became the first Premier League manager to take a voluntary pay cut amid the coronavirus pandemic, with the 42-year-old said to earn £3million a year on the south coast (Guardian).
By contrast, Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho continues to take home his full £290,000 per week wage, with members of his playing staff including Harry Kane ( £200,000 per week), Heung-min Son (£140,000 per week) and Hugo Lloris (£100,000 per week) all still receiving their full pay packet (Daily Mail).
