Mourinho hints at Tottenham wage cuts resting on European qualification

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has suggested that there are talks ongoing with the club and the players over wage cuts, depending on where they finish in the Premier League table.


Several clubs have reached agreements with their respective squads in order to help lower the financial impact of the coronavirus crisis, despite the players' union (PFA) rejecting the Premier league's proposal to force players to have 30 per cent wage cut in April.


Mourinho suggested that the talks about these cuts would depend on if Tottenham actually qualify for the European competitions or not, stating that he would also take the wage cut.


Speaking on the matter, Mourinho stated that if the team doesn't get "a Europa League position, we're not helping the club in relation to that extra money."


He added that "The focus is on getting results, performing and finishing the season the best we can. After that, what my players and my club decide, I will be always with them."


He reiterated that "I am with my club and I am with my players."


Spurs are currently in eighth place, four points behind Manchester United and Wolves who are in fifth and sixth respectively. Tottenham are set to face West Ham United on Tuesday night.
