550 Of Tottenham's Non-Playing Staff Have Been Placed On Leave.

: 03/31/2020 - 13:03

A total of 550 of Tottenham's non-playing directors and employees will be put on a leave of absence for the next two months.

That includes the Premier League club's chairman Daniel Levy - who confirmed the news today.

The furloughed staff will be part of the UK government's Covid-19 Job Retention Scheme, which pays 80-percent of wages.

Levy also expresses his hope that players and coaches will help and ‘do their bit for the football eco system.’

Yesterday Newcastle United became the first Premier League club to place members of their non-playing staff on temporary leave in response to the coronavirus crisis.

The Premier League is currently suspended until April 30 at the earliest.
