Jan Vertonghen makes his stance clear on Tottenham’s furlough decision

Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen has seemingly made his stance on the club’s decision to furlough non-playing staff clear with his actions on social media (h/t Football.London).

Last week Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy announced that the club will be placing some of its non-playing staff on furlough, taking advantage of the UK government’s pay-retention scheme to cover 80% of the staff’s salaries. The decision had been met with widespread criticism (h/t The Sun).

Following in Tottenham’s footsteps, Premier League leaders Liverpool also decided to put its non-playing staff on furlough this past weekend. However, after facing huge backlash, the Reds made an U-turn on their decision, announcing on Monday that the club would not be furloughing staff (h/t Football.London).

And Vertonghen seems to have delivered his verdict on the matter, after it appeared that the 32-year-old Belgian international liked a post by BBC Sport that reported the news of Liverpool’s decision (h/t Football.London).

Levy’s decision to place the club’s non-playing staff on furlough hasn’t been a popular one. And it seems as if Vertonghen agrees with that. Following Liverpool’s U-turn on the matter, Tottenham are under pressure to change their decision to furlough non-playing staff (h/t Evening Standard).

Vertonghen, who has been at Tottenham since 2012, is in the final few months of his contract with the club. Given his contractual situation, there have been questions over his future at Tottenham. It remains to be seen if the club decide to hand him a new deal and extend his stay in North London beyond the current season.
