According to reports, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy was paid a £3million bonus for ensuring the completion of the club's new stadium.
This huge bonus was an addition to his already hefty salary of £4million, which he had deferred from 2018 after Spurs moved into their 62,000-seater stadium (widely regarded as the best in the world) last April.
The club accounts, published on Companies House website, read: “The total aggregate remuneration of directors, who are deemed to represent key management personnel, for the year ended 30 June 2019 was £6.4million.
“However, this amount excluded a bonus which was deferred from the year ended 30 June 2018 as it was contingent upon the completion of the stadium, which amounted to £3.9m, making the total aggregate remuneration for the year ended 30 June 2019 £10.3m.
“The highest-paid director received remuneration of £4m for the year in addition to the bonus deferred from the prior year of £3m, as explained above.”
At the moment, Levy has taken a 20 percent pay-cut as the coronavirus pandemic threatens the club's accounts, as there is no revenue from matches.
