Tottenham unlikely to follow Liverpool and change staff furlough decision

Tottenham Hotspur are unlikely to follow in the footsteps of Liverpool and make an U-turn on their decision to put non-playing staff on furlough. This claim comes from a report from the Mirror.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy announced last week that the club were enforcing a 20% pay cut on all of its 550 non-playing staff, in some cases by furloughing them, due to the coronavirus crisis. This decision had been met with a widespread criticism by former players and managers (h/t Mirror).

In the aftermath, Premier League leaders Liverpool had also taken the decision to place their non-playing staff on furlough. However, after facing huge backlash from fans and former players, the Reds on Monday, revealed that they will be reversing their decision and issued an apology for taking such a step (h/t Mirror).

This sudden U-turn by the Merseysiders has ramped up pressure on Levy and Tottenham to follow their example and reverse the decision to furlough staff (h/t Mirror).

Tottenham Hotspur Support Trust (THST) also issued a statement earlier this week urging the hierarchy to countermand the decision before the club’s reputation was damaged further.

However, as per the report, Tottenham are unlikely to bow to the pressure and stick with their call to place the non-playing staff on furlough. The staff are understood to have already received documents to sign stating they agreed with the pay-cuts and temporary changes to their current contracts (h/t Mirror).

This is likely to lead more criticism directed towards Levy and the Spurs’ top brass, especially with Liverpool reversing their decision while the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City have announced they will not be furloughing their non-playing staff.
