Cagliari players, staff forfeit one month salary


Players and staff at Serie A clubside Cagliari have agreed to go without pay for one month, its president Tommaso Giulini has said.

Giulini said the development was aimed at helping the Sardinian club get through the stoppage caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

Serie A, like several football leagues around the world, has been brought to a standstill.

There is no indication of when it may be able to start again, although the Italian federation says it wants to finish the season.

“I notice a great sense of responsibility, all our employees and not just the players have already given up a month’s pay.

“It was a gesture of great responsibility that allows us to limit the losses. If the championship doesn’t start again we’ll see what to do for the next few months.

“For now, we can only thank those who made this gesture,” Giulini said in an interview with the Sardinian television station Videolina on Wednesday.

On Saturday, Italian champions Juventus said their players had agreed to accept reduced wages from March to June to help the Turin club through the crisis.

Inter Milan were also reported by Italian media to be close to agreeing a wage cut with their players.

Some clubs such as Fiorentina and Torino have already said they think the season will have to be abandoned.
