Covid-19: Premier League called off until it is safe

Apr 04, 2020 11:01 IST

As Covid-19 death toll continues to mount, the English Premier League on Friday also extended the suspension until it is safe and appropriate. The officials said that any return to play will only be with the full support of government and when medical guidance allows. Premier League clubs have also decided to ask their players to opt for a combination of pay-cuts and deferrals amounting to 30 percent of their salary to ease the financial burden due to Covid-19. League's highly paid players have also come under enormous pressure by the government officials in recent days asking them to take reduced salaries.
