Premier League clubs to consult players on 30% wage cut as resumption delayed


Premier League clubs will consult their players over a possible 30 per cent wage cut during the coronavirus pandemic.

Following a meeting between all 20 clubs on Friday, it was also confirmed that matches will not resume at the beginning of May.

All clubs have agreed to put the proposed “combination of conditional reductions and deferrals” to players.

The Premier League will also give £125m to the EFL and National League, plus £20m to the National Health Service. Clubs still intend on completing all league and cup fixtures.

“Any return to play will only be with the full support of government and when medical guidance allows,” the Premier League said.

“It was acknowledged that the Premier League will not resume at the beginning of May – and that the 2019-20 season will only return when it is safe and appropriate to do so.” Said a Premier League statement.
