Professional clubs are affected by the crisis resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. Many of them have lowered the salaries of their players, to suffer the least collateral damage. Others have carried out salary deferrals like Everton. The Liverpool-based club announced it on its official website via a written statement by the club’s managing director, Denise Barrett-Baxendale.
Deferrals of up to 50% over the next three months when the elements of the first team had already accepted in March 30% salary deferrals.
“This remarkable display of unity has enabled the Club to maintain the salaries of all full-time and part-time employees, all of whom have remained in full employment throughout this period. This allowed the club to continue to pay its casual staff hired directly since the start of confinement on March 13, ”said Denise Barrett-Baxendale. 12th in the Premier League log after 29 days played, Everton will resume competition on Sunday June 21, with the derby against Liverpool at Goodison Park at 8:00 GMT
