The first captain of FC Barcelona, Leo Messi, has announced in the last hours that the first team will reduce their salary a 70% until the coronavirus crisis passes. Do you think it's OK?
After much speculation about the alleged disagreement of the FC Barcelona squad with the salary reduction proposed by the club, Leo Messi has issued a statement on Monday with which he has made it clear that the first soccer team accepts the reduction of 70% of their wages during the coronavirus crisis, and they will also pay in full the wages of the club's workers and employees affected by the ERTE.
Once the statement by Leo Messi has been released, from 'FCBN' we want to know the opinion of our readers in this regard, if they believe that the Barça first team has made a good decision or if, on the contrary, they think that the reduction should have included other percentages.
Some fans will think that, with the fortune that footballers already earn in advertising and marketing, they could save themselves by not collecting for a few months the part corresponding to their multimillion-dollar chips. Others, however, may not agree with the reduction proposed by the club, and believe that the reduction should not have been 70% but a smaller percentage, not so aggressive.
In any case, the first reactions of Barcelona through social networks have been good, with the majority of followers celebrating the decision of the players in times as complicated as those we live in today. To this day, it is not known for sure how long the confinement will last, and if the situation will be resolved in a month, two or more.
Common sense in the decision of the staff
For now, the most important thing is for each citizen to contribute their grain of sand, including elite athletes, as is the case with the culé squad. And, beyond the salary reduction or paying the salary of the club's workers, solidarity actions are also appreciated, such as the donation that Leo Messi recently made worth 1 million euros to health centers in Catalonia and Argentina.
If all citizens respect the rules and avoid risks, it is expected that the pandemic that currently plagues countries like Spain, Italy and the United States will diminish over the weeks. Difficult days are still awaited, but the light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer.
