Daniel Levy is understood to have taken a pay cut as well but considering his annual pay worth £7 million (annual salary of £3m plus an additional £4m bonus), Levy has been accused of taking advantage of the government subsidies for stood down workers. Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho is earning around $600,000 per week while talismanic striker Harry Kane reportedly earns $400,000 per week. Renowned Guardian journalist Chris Godfrey and former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore were among the few to express their discontent on the pay cut update from Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.
