ROME – “The theme of the sustainability of the football system during and after this global crisis is obviously a topic of extreme interest for all those who live in this system, including footballers.
We all have the interest that the economic balance is preserved and for this reason we must evaluate all the elements of the moment ".
Thus, at ANSA the president of the Assocalciatori, Damiano Tommasi.
“Loss of revenue, postponement of competitions, cancellation of events, government contributions, federal aid, support from international institutions. All these elements will tell us what the role of the players will be, "he added.
While in Italy he hesitates, in Germany he takes action. Borussia Moenchengladbach players, who finished fourth in the Bundesliga before the championship stop, agreed to cut their wages to mitigate the effects of the economic crisis due to Coronavirus.
The coach Marco Rose and his technical staff will do the same. This was revealed by the club director Max Eberl, according to what the club knows on its website.
“I am proud of the players, I am with Borussia in good and bad luck, and all this will ensure that the other employees of the club keep their places.
I didn't have to give many explanations to the boys, they know what is going on and it was they who offered me the self-reduction of wages.
These are particular times, and appropriate measures are needed. This decision – he added – will also allow us to avoid painful supplies in the summer ". (source ANSA).
