Brazil’s players refuse to cut wages –


Brazil’s professional footballers have rejected salary restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, rejecting a club proposal. The FENAPAF player union sent a letter to the club representative, Fluminese President Mario Bittencourt, on Wednesday evening (local time).

The clubs had proposed 25 percent less salary while the game was stopped. The players agreed to an early collective holiday in April, but with full holiday pay and the prescribed third of a month’s salary until May 4.

If the clubs are unable to make the payments, the Brazilian Football Association CBF is to act as a guarantor for them. Many Brazilian premier league clubs are heavily indebted and pay wages late in regular play.
