talkSPORT radio presenter Adrian Durham has questioned the Totteham Hotspur players and coaching staff over their silence following Daniel Levy’s decision to cut all non-playing staff wages by 20% and place them on furlough where appropriate due to coronavirus.
The Spurs chairman announced the decision in a statement on Monday that 550 employees will face a pay cut for April and May by utilising the Government’s furlough scheme.
Jose Mourinho, his coaching staff and playing squad have remained unaffected by the cuts.
Durham has urged the highly paid individuals to show compassion and speak out rather than continue to maintain radio silence about the matter.
It was also revealed that Levy received a £3m bonus last year for the completion of Tottenham’s new stadium, which was added to his £4m-a-year salary – up from £3m in 2018 (BBC).
In contrast, La Liga giants Barcelona players have agreed to take a 70 per cent in order for the club’s non-playing staff to continue to receive 100 per cent of their wages.
"Why have none of them followed their heart, or their conscience, and said anything?"
"It's been 24 hours since Daniel Levy's statement." ⏲️
