With news of some PSL clubs considering cutting players wages due to the worldwide Coronavirus outbreak, one supporter has shared his views as to why this would be an injustice to players.
Teams are still garnering money in this time in the forms of PSL grants, TV deals and sponsorships although they have taken a loss with match revenue, due to a lack of games.
It has been suggested that teams like Highlands Park are monitoring the financial implications of this lockdown although they haven’t made any decision as yet.
SL Supporter @emphahlele001 says that as long as clubs are receiving grants, players should be paid their monies.
“As long as PSL is paying its grants. Teams must pay their players. They have got families to look after, cars to pay, rent to pay etc.”
Do you think it would be fair to cut players’ wages during this time?
