Spurs reverses furlough decision for non-playing staff

Tottenham have reversed their decision to use the government’s furlough scheme for some non-playing staff during the coronavirus crisis following criticism from supporters.

On 31 March, the English football club announced 550 employees would take a 20% pay cut in an attempt “to protect jobs”.

But on Monday, a Spurs statement said non-playing staff would receive “100% of their pay for April and May”.

Only board members would now take salary reductions, the statement added.
