Tottenham fined Erik Lamela, Giovani Lo Celso and Sergio Reguilon for breaking covid rules over the festive period, and it has now been revealed that they donated the fines to the NHS helping the country fight the rampaging coronavirus.
Mail Sport reports that the Lilywhites have donated £100,000 to North Middlesex University Hospital’s staff to support their fight against the pandemic.
The Tottenham players had appeared in an image posted online after joining a party over the lockdown period.
The club made sure they paid for such behaviour and they have now used the money to good effect.
Chairman Daniel Levy said via Mail Sport: ‘The club always ring-fences player fine money for good causes and we can think of no better cause to donate these funds to than North Mid’s ‘Thank You’ initiative for staff.
‘NHS staff across the country continue to make sacrifices and put themselves at risk every day to save lives and we hope this contribution will go some way towards providing the recognition that these heroes deserve.
‘Although the circumstances in which we are able to provide the financial support required are regretful, we are pleased to know that we are able to contribute and look forward to working with North Mid on this fantastic initiative.’
Tottenham has led the way in giving back to society, and their recent gesture isn’t the first.
The stadium’s dressing rooms, medical and media facilities were used for outpatient services during the first lockdown.
The club has also allowed its underground parking lot to be used as a covid-19 testing centre.
