Tottenham Hotspur’s latest accounts, for the year ending in June 20, 2019, show exactly how much Daniel Levy was paid for his role as Chairman.

Charlie Eccleshare reported on Twitter that the report indicated that Levy took home £4m in wages between June 30 2018 and 2019, as well as an extra £3m in bonuses.

These bonuses came as Levy oversaw the completion of the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which opened at the end of last season.

The accounts in question have come to light on the same day that Spurs took the decision to cut the wages of all non-playing staff by 20% for March and April.

In a statement, Levy claimed that Tottenham had to follow the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Juventus in cutting costs in order to protect jobs and the club finances.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I am sure that some fans will hit out at Levy for his £3m bonus payment, but I would argue that it is fully deserved. That man practically lived at the stadium site while the building was ongoing and represented the beating heart of the project. We now have a brand-new state-of-the-art stadium thanks to him, so giving him a one-off bonus payment seems fair enough.
