The Daily Mail have revealed that the Tottenham players would be in line for a healthy bonus if the club manage to qualify for the Champions League.

Spurs currently sit two points behind their North London rivals in fourth place, with four games left to go.

Should they pip the Gunners to fourth place (or potentially even Chelsea), The Mail claim that the Tottenham hierarchy will financially reward the players.

The squad will allegedly trigger a bonus of just over £1m for finishing fourth while they would receive over £1.5m if they finished third.

It is explained that the majority of Spurs’ bonus schedule is spread across the season to incentivise each game.

Thus, in total, the Tottenham players would be in line for a bonus of up to £3m if they can get back into the Champions League, with the amount set to be shared amongst the squad based on appearances and minutes played.

The Mail reveal that, in addition, several Tottenham players have negotiated personal Champions League qualification bonuses into their contracts while Antonio Conte is also thought to have a similar bonus in his deal.

I believe that most if not all Premier League clubs will have similar bonus schemes in order to incentivise wins and end-of-season targets. It is not surprising that Tottenham’s bonus scheme for Champions League qualification is quite generous, given the additional revenue the club would be able to earn from being back in the tournament.
