According to an article in The Times Spurs players will receive a £2 million bonus to share between them as a reward for qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
The article says they (The Times) have learnt that the our Champions League players’ pool is worth a total of £7.5 million for winning the competition, with the size of the payments increasing the further they progress.
Our success in reaching the last 16, which was achieved as a result of Wednesday’s historic victory over Real Madrid at Wembley, and the article says that this has triggered the first bonus payment with every player who has featured for the club in the Champions League this season is entitled to a share of the £2 million, which in turn averages out at £105,000 a man, with the exact size of the payment is determined by their number of appearances
Our notoriously rigid pay structure is of course mentioned , but it is also mentioned that our players have heavily incentivised contracts based on good performances in their contracts, which in turn allows some players able to boost their salaries by as much as 20 per cent.
The article understands that the bonus pool at the club is one of the most generous in the Premier League, and Spurs players can expect to earn more than £350,000 each if they win the Champions League.
Our wage structure is one of the strictest in the league however it’s a good tactic giving players incentives to go out and perform. It can backfire if players seek riches elsewhere however but it certainly gives them goals to reach and that can’t be a bad thing
