Covid-19: Liverpool place non-playing staff on temporary leave

Apr 07, 2020 07:54 IST

With top-flight clubs meet with representatives of players and managers to discuss possible wage cuts during the suspended football season, Liverpool decided to place non-playing staff on temporary leave amid coronavirus crisis. However, the Premier League club announced that the staff members affected by this decision will be allowed to take 80% of their salary through the UK government's job retention scheme, with the club willing to complete the remaining salary to ensure financial damage is limited. Liverpool have followed the steps of other clubs like Newcastle, Tottenham, Bournemouth and Norwich, who have already taken the same decision.
