AS Roma have announced that their players and coaching staff will forgo four months' salary to ease the financial strain on the club due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Roma last played on March 1, with football across Europe shut down due to the Covid-19 crisis. Italy was particularly affected by the virus, with over 23,000 people dying.
With no timeframe as to when the Serie A season will - or even if it will - restart, Roma players, coach Paulo Fonseco, and his coaching staff have agreed to forgo wages for March, April, May and June.
The players players will also top up the wages of other club employees who were placed on the Italian government's social safety net scheme to ensure they received their regular monthly income.
Roma added that if the 2019/20 campaign resumes, then players and coaches have agreed an incentive-based payment plan if the club meets certain targets. Club management will also be taking salary cuts.
A letter from Roma's players to the club read: “We are writing to express our support to the company for all that it is doing in this period to overcome the difficulties created by the Covid-19 emergency.
"With the hope of doing something that will help the company to better restart the Roma project that we all share, we offer this financial proposal.
“We also confirm all of our support for the initiatives of AS Roma and Roma Cares to help those who find themselves in difficulty because of the virus. Forza Roma!”
