Southgate Taking 30% Pay Cut To Help FA

All employees earning £50,000 or more at the FA will take a temporary pay reduction.

England manager Gareth Southgate has taken a 30 percent pay cut in order to help the Football Association deal with the ongoing financial effects of the coronavirus crisis.

All employees earning £50,000 or more at the FA will take a temporary pay reduction of 7 and a half percent, with senior management taking a 15 percent cut.

The postponement of England internationals, FA Cup matches and Wembley events is forecast to cost them the equivalent of €113 million. 

The FA have also said they are considering the government's furlough scheme as "a contingency plan".
