Tottenham fans DEMAND explanation from the club after Levy’s decision to furlough 40 % of non-playing staff 

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy

Tottenham’s fans group have called to the club and demanded explanations for the decision to furlough 40 % of non-playing staff. 

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is under pressure after being criticised for his decision to use government schemes to pay 550 members of the staff. 

Tottenham and Liverpool were among the few clubs announcing to furlough the staff, however, Merseyside club has reversed their decision and apologised to the fans. 

North London side fans are open to the furlough decision, but demand more transparency from Levy. 

A statement, released by the group, says (via Mirror): “We have not condemned the use of the furlough scheme outright. Ruling out the use of a scheme without knowing if it would lead to job losses would be irresponsible, and something the Club staff would not thank us for advocating.

“However, we are asking for the Club to make the case for needing to use the furlough scheme public. Our preference would be for non-playing salaries to be funded through a voluntary reduction in executive, player and coaching staff remuneration for at least the next two months.”
