Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho okay with taking a pay cut

As reported by Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has claimed that he would be open to taking a wage cut should the club deem it necessary at the end of the season.

Finances of the club have taken a huge hit due to the shutdown of football because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Tottenham are estimating a that the club will lose out on £200m this financial year due to television revenue rebates, lost gate receipts and cancelled events and sporting fixtures at their stadium. (h/t Football.london)

At boardroom level, the club staff has already taken a pay cut, while non-playing staff had been placed on furlough, a decision that was reversed after backlash from fans. (h/t Football.london)

Spurs to wait for more clarity before asking players for wage cuts

Chairman Daniel Levy had hoped that the players would follow suit in foregoing parts of their salary in order to help out the club financially, although the club decided to postpone decisions over the matter at the end of the season.  (h/t Football.london)

And when asked if he would be open to taking a cut on his paycheck, manager Jose Mourinho said:

“I am with my club and I am with my players. The decision of my club and my players are my decisions, always. Always. So with me, zero problems.”

The manager further insisted that his and the players’ first priority was to qualify for the Champions League or the Europa League in order lessen the financial burden on the club. (h/t Football.london)

“If we get a Champions League position, we’re helping the club. If we get a Europa League position, we’re helping less but we’re still helping the club. So the focus is on getting results, performing and finishing the season the best we can. After that, what my players and my club decide, I will be always with them.”
