Why Spurs stars’ agents are arguing their players should be paid more

The agents of some Tottenham stars reportedly believe players could be entitled to more money because of the Amazon Prime documentary about the club currently being filmed.

The Daily Mail say agents have been checking their clients’ contracts to see if appearing in the All Or Nothing series is included in the players’ obligations.

The newspaper quotes a ‘well placed source’ as saying: “There’s a belief that if the players, who feel they already do enough, have to do extra interviews then they should be getting paid for it.

“The issue they have got is that Tottenham’s contracts are notoriously watertight and that they don’t have a case. But it’s caused some anger and I wouldn’t expect the players to be going the extra mile for something they feel they are not getting paid for.”

Manager Mauricio Pochettino recently insisted that the filming of the documentary has not been a factor in Tottenham’s disappointing start to the season, but he did suggest that it has been challenging.

Speaking at a press conference last week, Pochettino said: “Now I am like a producer. Being coach, manager and producer.

“The most important is to live the reality, it’s not to try to generate something that is fake or not real.”
