Nakamba Set For 30% Pay Cut

Zimbabwe international footballer Marvelous Nakamba is set for a significant pay cut after English Premier League clubs resolved to ask their players to take a 30% pay cut in order to protect jobs amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Premier League clubs held a meeting on Friday where they proposed a cut in wages in order to “protect employment throughout the professional game”.

Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston welcomed the move, saying it was “absolutely right”. He said:

It is absolutely right that a reduction of players’ wages is on the table when there are lower-paid staff at some clubs being furloughed.

The football authorities must all be aware of the strength of public feeling on this and I expect them to show leadership on the matter.

It is important that the Premier League helps the national effort in response to the coronavirus pandemic and I will continue to work closely with the football authorities.
