Championship Clubs may temp cap wages at £6000 a week

Recommended Posts

Leading Championship clubs are considering a radical plan to cap player wages at £6,000 a week, as panic starts to take hold over the suspension of the football season.

 

Telegraph Sport can reveal that a number of Championship clubs held a conference call on Friday to discuss the prospect of players taking temporary pay cuts until the resumption of the season.

 

League One and League Two clubs are also considering deductions for playing staff, but the ambitious move from Championship clubs today only underlines the huge financial concerns generated by the coronavirus crisis.

Football may be more humble 12 months from now.

 

The whole world may be.

 

I struggle to understand how this can be implemented though.

How can they do it? The contracts are between club and player , the EFL aren't party to those contracts.

 

Players could challenge it and win. Maybe players with long term contracts might accept it. Why would players out of contract this summer?

 

If wages are reduced, players could call it breach of contract and walk out.

 

Desperation from the clubs but a lot are owned by multimillionaires.

Bloody ell how will they manage...

As ridiculous as it sounds, some of them may struggle if they have mortgages etc. Footballers aren’t exactly renowned for intellect, and some might not have a rainy day fund...

For out, £6000 between them, would be borderline reasonable.

lets hope the clubs are able to do this but surely they would need some emergency legislation to do this to stop the bent lawyers.

also when are the football clubs sky,bt UEFA etc going to it in there thick heads the season is over , they need to sort something regards player contracts reduced to reflect the loss of revenue and 20% appx losing from tv revenue . im even doubting next season starting at this rate . it is totally impossible to continue this season either in july sept or whenever ,every club will have different players after june 30th with contracts expiring .
