Lots of Tottenham Hotspur supporters have ignored a clip of Harry Kane posted by the north London club’s official Twitter page and instead urged Spurs to pay their staff.
This follows the news from Football Insider that all heads of department, including recruitment chief Steve Hitchen, have been forced to take a 20 per cent cut, with Hitchen also having to close his department down.
Earlier this week, Daniel Levy announced on the Lilywhites’ official website that all 550 non-playing staff were to take a cut of the same figure and be put on furlough ‘where appropriate’, which has angered lots of supporters.
They were seemingly not bothered by the tweet showing Kane scoring in a Premier League game against Brighton and Hove Albion back in October 2014. The 26-year old has been rumoured to leave Tottenham by various outlets with a recent report from the Daily Mail relaying comments from former boss Harry Redknapp that Kane could replace Sergio Aguero at Manchester City.
Would you like Jose Mourinho to walk away from Tottenham?
Yet these fans were more concerned about the news of the cutbacks and decided to voice their anger over the post:
no longer a Spurs fan of you can't pay your staff.

How ironic that you used Brighton… The one club that has done the right thing during this difficult time and is paying ALL staff 100% of their wages because the “big boys” are taking massive pay cuts 🤔
