El Chelsea denied that it will impose pay cuts on players and explained that instead, he will ask them to continue his supporting charitable organizations during the coronavirus pandemic.
The English Premier League club indicated that you will not put any of your full-time staff on leave without pay and that part-time and game-day workers will be compensated by the team through June 30.
Chelsea has been in negotiations with its players about salary cuts that are reported to be around 10% in an effort to save money during the current crisis. That's less than the Premier's suggestion of 30% for all clubs, but Chelsea has decided on a different approach.
After highlighting the PlayersTogether initiative launched by Premier footballers this month with the aim of raising money for charitable organizations of the National Health Service, Chelsea told her stars to focus their efforts on various causes.
"Chelsea board representatives have recently held extensive discussions with the men's first team players to discuss how they can contribute financially to the club during the coronavirus crisis," reads a statement on the club's website. "At this time, the first team is not going to contribute financially to the club and instead the board has instructed them to focus their efforts on further supporting other charitable causes."
