The club “The Old Lady” said in a statement that the agreement with the administration would mean “saving 90 million euros ($ 100.5 million) in the 2019-2020 fiscal year.”
Several international clubs have begun to conclude agreements with players and their various employees, or even to announce decisions unilaterally, to reduce salaries in light of the near complete paralysis on various sporting levels due to the “Covid 19” epidemic.
Clubs fear the financial consequences of this pause, which began in March, especially the absence of match revenues and revenues from television broadcasts.
Previously, the local authorities announced the cessation of all sporting activities until the third of next April, but this date has become the rule of the extender in light of the current health conditions, and in the absence of any horizon for the return of competitions.
Juventus, the champion of “Serie A” in the past eight seasons, who was leading the standings by a point by Lazio before the suspension of the competitions, that the agreement includes “reducing salaries between March and June.”
He noted that if the 2019-2020 season is completed, players may receive higher salaries in subsequent months than those specified in their contracts.
And the city of Turin club thanked: “Thanks to the players and coach for their commitment in a difficult time for everyone.”
Juventus defender Daniele Rogani, was the first Serie A player to prove “Covid-19”. The club announced the registration of two additional injuries in its ranks for French Blaise Matuidi and Argentine Paulo Dybala.
