FC Barcelona is facing a serious crisis due to the halt of all competitions and will have to take tough measures. It seems that one of them would be to lower the salary of the basketball team by 70%
The FC Barcelona faces right now a crisis tremenda for the club to economic level by fault of the coronavirus. The Barcelona do not have income since the competitions stopped and right now is an incógnita what can suceder from now. From the club know that it goes to be necessary to take extreme measures to surpass this situation and already have put hands to the work to attain this aim.
As 'Sportive World', the group barcelonista already has spoken with several sections of the club in search of a solution. In this case, the first big measure that wants to take the Barça is related with the team of basketball. It seems that the culés already would have gathered with Nacho Rodríguez, manager of the section, that to his time already has had a meeting with Ante Tomic and Pau Ribas, captains of the group of Svetislav Pesic.
Rodríguez already would have gathered with the Croat and the Catalan to move him the proposal of the club, that pretends that all the staff go down the wage 70%. The idea of the Barcelona is to apply a file of temporary regulation of employment, the called ERTE, with all his workers. The players also would see affected by this situation, although they would see much more prejudiced that any another member of the club, since his wages are very upper.
With the section of basketball wants to do an ERTE of reduction of day and wage of the mentioned 70%. The date of start of this would be on 13 March, that was when the Spanish government declared the state of alarm. The end of this ERTE would be when the League Endesa and the Euroliga return, if it is that they do it. In this case, the Barcelona would engage to pay whole the wage of each player so that they do not lose money.
Tomic And Ribas have communicated him to his mates the measure that pretends to take the club via Whatsapp and anybody has taken it to him well. The members of the team would be very annoying with the Barcelona and did not expect that they proposed them something like this. Many, in fact, even have left to fall that they could decide terminate the agreement that joins them to the Barça by this measure. Niko Mirotic, Corey Higgins, Víctor Claver or Brandon Davies that they are some of the players that more win, would lose a lot of money with this ERTE.
The income of the Barça depend of the football
It is necessary to take into account that the big majority of income of the FC Barcelona depend only and exclusively of the football, by what the basketball and the rest of sections could be at the expense of what suceda with LaLiga and the Champions League. Recortar Wages in the sections seems the first measure of the club, but will not be the last. The aim is that the footballers of the first team culé also go down the wage próximamente.
