Tottenham Ask Mauricio Pochettino To Take Pay Cut Due To COVID-19

Tottenham Ask Mauricio Pochettino To Take Pay Cut Due To COVID-19

Tottenham have asked Mauricio Pochettino to take a pay cut despite the Argentine no longer managing the club.

Mere months after guiding the club to the Champions League final, Pochettino was sacked in November and replaced by Jose Mourinho.

When the Argentine was given his marching orders, it was arranged that Spurs would continue paying him his £8.5 million-per-year salary until he returned to management.

But with the coronavirus outbreak causing some financial issues, the Daily Mail say that Daniel Levy and Spurs are said to have asked their former boss to take a pay cut on the £163,000-a-week wage he is currently receiving while on gardening leave.

At this point there has been no breakthrough in getting the playing squad to take a pay cut, as well as current manager Jose Mourinho.

Jamie Carragher was asked for his reaction during an appearance on Sky Sports this morning and he reckons the former Southampton boss will be giving it the silent treatment.

"Pochettino, we all loved him. I'm sure there was a big pay-off, there is going to be cuts right across football," Carragher said.

"But if he is struggling to get players to defer wages, I think Pochettino will just be ignoring phone calls from Daniel Levy and switching his phone off. It'll be much harder to get a sacked manager to take cuts, than the players."
