Spurs stars contemplating cost of failure

If Tottenham fail to qualify for the Champions League next season, it will hit their players where it hurts most – in their pockets.

That is because they will face a loss of wages and bonuses is they miss out, the result of an incentivised pay structure introduced at the club by Chairman Daniel Levy. Under the scheme players are rewarded for success, but penalised if they fail to qualify for the Champions League, protecting the club financially.

Spurs have had an indifferent start to the season in the league, with Saturday’s defeat at Brighton leaving them ninth. They have also had a terrible time in the cup competitions, dumped out of the Carabao Cup by League Two Colchester United, and thrashed at home by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

They have finished in the top four for the past four seasons, but may have their work cut out if they are to do so again.
