Paris – France’s professional football associations have reportedly agreed to a temporary cut in wages in the Corona crisis.
“The idea is that players put some of their April salaries back so that clubs can make ends meet,” said Philippe Piat, president of the UNFP players’ union, the French news agency AFP. Accordingly, the agreement provides for a gradual wage cut until the funds for television broadcasts flow again.
For example, players with an income between 10,000 and 20,000 euros should receive 20 percent less wages in April, players with an income of more than 100,000 euros per month should forego half of the salary. However, the agreement is only a recommendation. Nobody can be forced to stick to it, said UNFP chief Piat. “They are advised to accept this because it is about maintaining jobs.”
