footballers and their salaries

The bosses of the famous Spanish League are urgently asking their own league’s football teams to cut their salaries to footballers.

The salary cuts to footballers are aimed at the fact that the Spanish League is not receiving income, or at least, not the income necessary to support all the workers (which by the way, are not a small amount) that belong to them.

In addition to this previous reason, these cuts in salaries to footballers also allow more funds to be allocated to medical supplies, something that is currently pressing the world in general.

How do these wage cuts for footballers work?

The first to implement these wage cuts for footballers were the famous and acclaimed teams of Atlético de Madrid and Barcelona, ​​both teams in the Spanish League.

Both teams made a cut in salaries to footballers that consists of 70% of their normal income and those first-team players together with the heads and authorities of these teams. In order to convey their wages, or at least part of them, to the rest of the workers who are at home due to the current situation, they made a donation of their own savings.

Although it is true that many players do not agree with this salary reduction that is strongly requested, it is true that it is urgently necessary to meet the needs of patients and hospitals.

The football industry is very large and there are thousands of workers in this industry who are at home with a leave without pay, with the responsibility of supporting their family and who are not receiving any type of income for this.

That is why the Spanish League asks that the players become aware of this and help in the way they are asked.

Although it was thought from the beginning that this could turn into a major economic problem, it was agreed that the first priority was to save the lives of millions of people.

For this reason, it is necessary to cut the millionaire salaries of soccer players and dedicate those resources to the fight against this epidemic.
