Tottenham becomes latest club to apply temporary pay cuts to avoid financial crisis

Tottenham Hotspur have followed in the steps of other European clubs in applying temporary pay cuts for their staff as the Coronavirus pandemic continues to bite hard. 

More than 500 non-playing staff, including Chairman Daniel Levy, will now be forced to take 20% wage cuts in order to balance financial books at the London club. 

This was revealed by Levy on Tuesday, who further hinted at similar implementations set to be directed at players and coaching staff. 

"We hope the current discussions between the Premier League, PFA and LMA will result in players and coaches doing their bit for the football ecosystem."

Levy further called on Premier League managers and players to help English football in dealing with the financial hit by taking similar pay cuts. 

Major leagues have been hit with the pandemic, resulting in the postponement of matches and competitions alike. 

Barcelona, Juventus, Espanyol, Atletico Madrid, and AS Roma have all taken similar steps, which are aimed at protecting the clubs from plunging into further financial crisis. 

Other clubs are expected to follow suit in the coming days with no solution in sight in the immediate future.
