Tottenham Hotspur Hailed As Model To Follow By European Leagues Chief


Tottenham Hotspur have been hailed as the model to follow in changed football times by the managing director of the European Leagues organisation.

Finances are coming under strain across the game due to seasons being declared at an end early by some countries and other countries attempting to restart football behind closed doors. 


The Bundesliga has now returned to action behind closed doors, while the Premier League is aiming to restart on 17th June and play the season to a finish.

Finances are expected to be hit across the continent and Jacco Swart, who is the managing director of the European Leagues, the voice of no fewer than 36 leagues and over 950 clubs across Europe, thinks Tottenham are the model to follow due to their wages to turnover ratio of just 39 per cent. 

"The numbers and strategies of Spurs are an encouraging sign for the new normal in football", Swart was quoted as saying by Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Premier League is poised to restart with Aston Villa vs Sheffield United, while Manchester City will play host to Mikel Arteta's Arsenal.

The league is looking to end the season before the end of July.

Tottenham currently sit in eighth place with nine fixtures left to play and find themselves seven points off a top four Champions League spot.
