COVID-19: Juventus squad agree to halt wages for 4 months

Share This Post

As per BBC Sport, amidst the COVID-19 crisis sweeping the globe, the Juventus squad and manager Maurizio Sarri have all agreed to freeze their wages for the next four months.

This action will reportedly save the club somewhere in the region of £90m over the course of the next few months. Currently, all sport in Italy has been suspended until April 3 at the earliest.

Italy are now the worst affected country in the world by COVID-19 and the curve is showing so signs of flattening any time soon. As a result, it’ll likely be at least 3-4 months before we see any kind of sport played over there.

This move from the Italian champions follows a similar decision from the German champions Bayern Munich, as well as Borussia Dortmund and more. It will allow the club to stay financially stable whilst still paying all non-playing staff properly.

“Juventus would like to thank the players and the coach for their commitment at a difficult time for everyone,” read a club statement in the wake of this decision.

On the pitch, the club, who have been champions of Italy for the last eight seasons, currently sit in their natural position atop Serie A. They lead challengers Lazio by a single point.

On the current evidence, it’s becoming harder and harder to see a scenario in which the current football season will be finished – especially in Italy.

As much as I’m a part of the camp who believe that the current season SHOULD be finished in the interest of fairness – it becoming more and more unlikely.

To me, it seems we should be worrying more about the season that is halfway done more than we should about when the new one will begin. You can’t help but feel for Liverpool and other teams who will be denied their glory should the league be declared void.
