The former Irish professional footballer and coach advised players in wealthy Premier League clubs not to agree to salary cuts during a coronavirus pandemic under any circumstances. The multiple champions of the league declared that he would not let himself be touched on his salary.
The Premier League has been suspended since March 13, so some clubs have sent their players and employees on forced holidays. In some teams, players and coaches accepted deferral of payouts, while at Arsenal they agreed to reduce pallets by 12.5 percent."I see it that way, also because of the circumstances in which I left Manchester United.
I wouldn't accept a pay cut if I was in one of the bigger clubs, "Keane, who worked as a midfielder in Manchester for thirteen years, told SKY SPORT television.Keanu added that contracts between players and clubs are individual matters that should be taken so even in these times. It is not right for a club to require players to do the same.
He added that when negotiating a contract with clubs, it was always clear to him that it was primarily business."When billionaire-owned clubs come after the player and claim to have problems ... insist on complying with the terms of the contract. Forget about downsizing, because clubs will be the first to tell you that it's a business and that's how it works, "added the former midfielder and coach.
