Pardew urged not to accept relegation bonus at ADO Den Haag

Former Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew is being urged in Holland not to accept a bonus in his ADO Den Haag contract.

Ruud Gullit has called on Alan Pardew to hand back his £100,000 bonus after cash-strapped ADO Den Haag were saved from relegation by the coronavirus crisis.

Gullit insists Pardew hasn't earned the money. He said: “For Alan Pardew, it must be a massive relief that ADO won't be going down.

“I understand he was entitled to a bonus if he kept them up. But is that really his work and is it thanks to him?

“The league has been called off - and considering the financial problems the club now has because of the coronavirus crisis, I will find it interesting if Pardew will still want to receive his bonus."

Holland became the first nation to void their domestic season on Friday.

And with government restrictions set to remain in place, there will be no Dutch football until September.
