The Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) has written to players to warn that it is “vitally important” they speak to their union before accepting wage cuts.

The coronavirus pandemic has suspended the football season indefinitely, leading to a number of sides reducing the pay of non-playing staff to compensate for lost revenue.

Some Premier League sides, including Tottenham and Newcastle, have placed non-playing staff on furlough, meaning the government will pay 80 per cent of their wages – up to £2,500 per month – while they are not working.

However, no collective agreement has yet been found on reducing players’ pay. The PFA held talks with the Premier League, English Football League (EFL) and League Managers’ Association (LMA) on Friday.

More talks are planned but the issue is made more complex by the wide contrast between players’ pay at the top and bottom level of the professional game.

Following Friday’s meeting, the PFA has now written to players to update them. The letter, which has been seen by Sky Sports News, read:

“As part of the stakeholders’ meeting last Friday, the PFA requested to see each club’s financial situation before we offer advice to players on whether to accept the terms offered.

“This will help us to find the best solution for you, as well as the long-term future of your club.

“Before accepting or signing any paperwork from your club, it is vitally important that squads collectively discuss proposals with the PFA.

“We have already been working with multiple teams from all divisions and have created a standardised template that can be used when agreeing to temporary financial measures. This ensures that you are legally protected.”
