Lineker criticises Tottenham for furloughing club’s non-playing staff


Gary Lineker has criticised his former club Tottenham after the Premier League clubs announcement that they will furlough 550 members of their non-playing staff.Lineker, who announced he will donate two months wages to the British Red Cross, also said he expected top-flight players to step up and do their bit to contribute to the coronavirus crisis.Tottenham are among four Premier League clubs to announce a furlough of non-playing staff which involves a reduction in their salaries to 80% whilst their players lucrative deals remain intact.Tottenham chief Daniel Levy has come in for stinging criticism (Steven Paston/PA)Lineker told BBC Radio 4s World at One: The way Tottenham have handled it I dont think has been very good what they are doing to their staff I dont agree with whatsoever.But that is a separate issue to what the players do. Its the club that has said that the players are going to carry on with their wages, but lets see how the players react to it.Players across Spain and Italy have agreed voluntary pay-cuts with the entire Barcelona squad, led by Lionel Messi, agreeing to 70% reductions while the coronavirus crisis continues.Decided to donate a couple of months salary to @BritishRedCross who are doing vital work for those most vulnerable during the Coronavirus crisis. Feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do this. If youd like to join in, itd be greatly appreciated. Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) April 2, 2020And Lineker urged patience in respect of the response of Premier League stars, insisting: I think a lot of footballers will do something, and I think there will be a lot of announcements at clubs.My inkling is that footballers will take pay cuts, they will help out in communities, they will make donations in whatever way they can, and I think we need to be a little bit patient with them.Reflecting on his own decision to make a charity donation, Lineker added: Ive decided that Im going to donate two months net salary to the British Red Cross, who are on the frontline trying to help in all sorts of different ways.Hopefully other people who are in a position of relative wealth can do something similar.(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document,'script','//','ga'); ga('create', 'UA-72310761-1', 'auto', {'name': 'pacontentapi'}); ga('pacontentapi.set', 'referrer', location.origin); ga('pacontentapi.set', 'dimension1', 'By PA Staff'); ga('pacontentapi.set', 'dimension2', '4eeb7520-79ce-44dd-bdef-591336e494be'); ga('pacontentapi.set', 'dimension3', 'paservice:sport,paservice:sport:football,paservice:sport:uk,paservice:sport:world'); ga('pacontentapi.set', 'dimension6', 'story'); ga('pacontentapi.set', 'dimension7', 'composite'); ga('pacontentapi.set', 'dimension8', null); ga('pacontentapi.set', 'dimension9', 'sport:football'); ga('pacontentapi.send', 'pageview', { 'location': location.href, 'page': (location.pathname + + location.hash), 'title': 'Lineker criticises Tottenham for furloughing club\u2019s non-playing staff'});
