Chelsea players are still getting their due salaries week in week out, as with all Premier League players despite the suspension of the league, but that may soon change.
The Premier League has been suspended since early March, but it hasn’t stopped both match day and non-match day staff from getting paid. However, clubs haven’t been getting revenues and this could affect clubs finances over time.
According to ESPN, all 20 Premier league clubs, including Chelsea, are meeting on a video conference on April 3, to discuss the way forward, as clubs look to cut down on all unnecessary expenses, pending when the Premier League returns.
The non availability of football action has caused clubs to suffer some financial blow, and they believe it’s unfair to them to keep spending so much in face of the current reality.
If this will happen, it will be subject to approval from the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA), but unless training at least resumes soon, it’s unlikely they too will have a different say on the matter.
