The coronavirus crisis has not only affected the health of the world population, but has also had an impact on the economic aspect. Like businesses, soccer leagues have also been forced to stop, and the case of Bundesliga It was not an exception. Bundesliga* Data updated as of March 24, 2020 Bundesliga* Data updated as of March 24, 2020 But no one had anticipated such a hiatus and in clubs, especially lower-ranking employees who work in stadiums on game days, it will be a while before they can return to normal work. But the big expenses that the teams have to face are the salaries of the first team players. These millionaire salaries, if reduced, would help each club to mitigate their losses and at the same time support those most affected employees. And that’s why according to Bild, Yesterday, the directors of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund spoke with their respective staff to ask them to lower their salaries while controlling the pandemic.The German newspaper tells that they have been asked to cut their salaries by 20%, which would be a good figure to face the losses that this crisis can cause. The players, aware of the seriousness of the situation, would have agreed to do so to help as much as possible, serving the two great clubs in Germany as an example for the rest of the Bundesliga teams to do the same.

Phoenix is coming up and they’re a tough team, they’re very aggressive so we gotta be locked in.”“We’re focused on our game against Phoenix then, let’s see what the scenario will be. We’re hoping to beat Phoenix and get that number six spot to avoid playing the number one or two in the quarters because they’ll have twice-to-beat,” said GlobalPort coach Pido Jarencio.ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson
