BOSS EXPECTS TOP PLAYERS TO TAKE A WAGE CUT

3 April 2020

“They are good guys, footballers. They will see the ramifications that could happen to clubs”

Paul Lambert accepts that football is under scrutiny now and expects an agreement to take place that will see Premier League players take a wage cut amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Premier League, English Football League, Professional Footballers’ Association and League Managers Association are all meeting again today to discuss a way forward for the game, both from a financial aspect and a logistical one.

The Government have also had their say, indicating it would be the right thing to do.  

“There is a lot of spotlight on football at the moment. It’s under a lot of scrutiny, especially at the top end,” the Town boss told the Club website.

“Football clubs are important to the community and no one wants to see people losing their jobs at clubs.

“I think there will be an agreement somewhere along the way that will see a wage cut in the Premier League - maybe Championship as well - definitely Premier League because of the level of money that is there.

“They are good guys, footballers. They will see the ramifications that could happen to clubs.”
