Former Manchester United, Manchester City and West Ham forward Carlos Tevez believes top-flight footballers should offer to cut their wages during the coronavirus crisis.

The Argentine wants football players to help out during the coronavirus crisis.

“We have to be there, to help out,” he told America TV. “Of course I would gladly go and help in a soup kitchen, to do whatever.

“A great example would be for all of us, footballers, actors, to go out there and help in the poor neighbourhoods which is where help is needed. I’m available to do that.

“Any footballer can live six months or a year without getting paid. We are not a good example, we might be for other things but not for this.

“We don’t have the despair that others live with day after day, those that have to leave their homes at 6 a.m. and return at 7 in the afternoon in order to feed their families the next day.

“For us, it’s easy to talk from home, knowing that I have food for my children. But for those desperate people, that can’t move, that if they leave their homes they will get arrested and can’t feed their children, it’s very worrying.”
