Leeds players defer wages to allow non-football staff to be paid

The players, management and senior staff at Championship table-toppers Leeds have volunteered to defer their wages "for the foreseeable future".

It's so all of the club's non-football staff can continue to be paid during the sport's shutdown because of the coronavirus pandemic.

"Leeds United is a family, this is the culture that has been created by everyone at the club, from the players and the board to the staff and the supporters in the stands," the players confirmed in a statement.

"We face uncertain times and therefore it is important that we all work together to find a way that the club can push through this period and end the season in the way we all hope we can.  In the meantime, let’s work as one to listen to the government advice and the health service and beat this virus."

Leeds' director of football, Victor Orta, added: “My players have demonstrated an incredible sense of unity and togetherness and I am proud of their actions.

"To Marcelo and his staff and all of the players, we thank them for putting our wider team first and taking care of family. Now we must focus on public health, and when the people are safe, finish what we started".
