Italian clubs are continuing to consider the possibly of cutting players wages in a bid to mitigate the financial impact of the current situation according to a report in today’s print edition of Gazzetta dello Sport.
Due to the ongoing global Coronavirus pandemic, leagues across the world are currently on hold, including those in Italy.
Clubs across the globe have been and will continue to be hit hard financially in the absence of football and as per the Milan based newspaper, Serie A clubs have the belief that they can request their players to take temporary wage cuts to help out.
Clubs are working on the basis that they pay their players to perform week in week out but with no football to be played for the foreseeable future, players are not doing what they are employed to do, albeit through no fault of their own.
The report goes on to explain that there are still no real negotiations happening with the Italian players association regarding the possibility of wage cuts but it is understood that they are willing to do their part but need to know how much their members will have to contribute.
