Manuel Neuer: 'We're privileged, we should accept a pay cut'

Manuel Neuer: 'We're privileged, we should accept a pay cut'”

Bundesliga sides cope with the financial hit of the coronavirus outbreak.

"The DFL Executive Committee is very thankful to the four Champions League participants for their gesture towards our community of clubs".

The news comes after the Bundesliga faces even more turmoil as The DFL postponed its tender rights for domestic Bundesliga broadcasts for future seasons due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, providing even more financial insularity until the coronavirus spread begins to slow down.

Unlike in England, German clubs are not bankrolled by billionaire owners and the clubs in question will now forego their share of the national media revenue and donate the remainder from their own funds.

Bayern's board, led by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic agreed the cuts after a meeting with senior players on Monday including Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski, David Alaba, Joshua Kimmich and Thiago Alcantara.

"It's a clear signal: we all stand together for our Schalke, not just in good times, but above all in bad times".

Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said: "The BVB is now working deeply into society through a variety of actions".

With the league suspended until at least the end of April, most clubs are hoping that the season can be played out behind closed doors in the summer to avoid severe losses in TV revenues.

In England, Championship leaders Leeds United announced on Thursday that players, coaches and senior management would defer their wages in order to ensure that the 272 members of full-time staff at the Yorkshire club would not lose their jobs.

Director of football Victor Orta praised the players' show of unity for the rest of the club's employees.
