Bayern, Dortmund players accept wage slash

Players and directors at Germany’s two biggest clubsides, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, have agreed to take a temporary pay cut.

The clubs, two of Europe’s most illustrious, said the move was to help the other employees at the club financially during the coronavirus crisis.

Players at Union Berlin, 11th in the Bundesliga, had earlier announced they will go entirely without their wages.

The club’s entire first team squad said their decision was due to what they termed an “extraordinary and difficult situation”.

Last week, Borussia Monchengladbach’s players  became the first in Germany to offer to forgo wages.

Bayern players will take a 20% pay cut, while Dortmund players will “waive part of their salaries”.

There has been no Bundesliga action since March 8 as the coronavirus outbreak hit global sport.

There was no timescale on how long the players would be without pay.
