Tottenham players are facing pay-cuts and a loss of bonuses if they fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
According to The Daily Mail, Daniel Levy Spurs’ chairman, introduced an incentivised pay structure that rewards the squad for success but also protects Spurs financially in the event of missing out on the Champions League.
But it has been a struggle for Spurs this season, as they are currently in ninth place in the Premier League with just three wins and a draw after eight games.
On Saturday, they surprisingly lost 3-0 to Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex.
Their woes was further compounded on Monday after it was announced that skipper, Hugo Lloris, will be out for the rest of 2019 with a dislocated elbow.
He sustained the injury in the defeat against Brighton on Saturday after he landed awkwardly on his left arm.
