Gareth Southgate: British manager plans 30% pay cut


Southgate was appointed director of England in 2016

British manager Gareth Southgate has to cut his £ 3m salary by 30% as one of the highest paid employees in the Football Association.

The FA said employees earning £ 50,000 or more per year will benefit from a 7.5% temporary pay cut, while senior management has agreed to a 15% cut.

CEO Mark Bullingham said it was a “tough time” and did not “take these decisions lightly”.

The government’s leave plan is considered to be an emergency plan.

Bullingham also said that the financial impact of postponements, including international matches in England, FA Cup matches and Wembley events, would contribute to a loss of around £ 100 million, but could reach 150 million pounds sterling according to “necessary medical measures of the government”.

Bullingham, who earns around £ 800,000 a year, added: “With many other organizations across the country, we are currently examining our financial model during this difficult time.

“We want to take prudent and appropriate steps to help protect and support the FA and our employees during this unpredictable time. “

Meanwhile, West Ham boss David Moyes told the Premier League club that he is willing to take a cut in wages due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Eddie Howe of Bournemouth and Graham Potter of Brighton have already volunteered for a pay cut as clubs try to find a way to limit their losses when games are suspended.
