Agency, 29 March : Juventus players and coaching staff have agreed to take a wage cut for the next four months amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The agreement is set to be worth around 90m euros (£80.7m) to the club’s wage bill, although an increase in pay would be renegotiated if and when the Serie A season is back underway.
In a statement released on Saturday, Juventus announced the club will reduce the wages it will pay out to its employees including head coach Maurizio Sarri and Cristiano Ronaldo for the months of March, April, May and June.
The reigning Serie A champions have had three players testing positive to coronavirus: Daniele Rugani, Blaise Matuidi and Paulo Dybala, who are all in good health conditions.
Football in Italy has been suspended since March 10, as the country remains the worst-hit nation by coronavirus, with the national death toll surpassing 10,000 on Saturday.
