Report: Spurs players will take a wage hit if they fail to finish in the top four

There are currently three ways for Tottenham Hotspur to get their name in the pot in the Champions League next season.

Either they finish in the top four of the Premier League, they win the Champions League, or they win the Europa League after being demoted from the top competition.

If Spurs want to continue reaping the rewards of that top European money in the transfer market to bring in more players like Tanguy Ndombele, then Champions League football is critical.

However, Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy, has ensured that the club is protected in terms of wages if the team do not qualify for the 2020/21 Champions League competition (Daily Mail).

Levy introduced an incentivised pay scheme recently, meaning that the players will earn less in wages and bonuses if they fail to qualify.

For those fans who accuse some stars of only playing for the money, it appears that Levy has every base covered, no matter the motives of his players.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Another smart move from a very smart man. Daniel Levy is underappreciated at Spurs and I fear that he always will be. However, I do believe that Tottenham can and will still finish in the top four this season.
