AS Roma CEO Guido Fienga released a statement praising the decision of the club’s players, manager Paulo Fonseca and the coach’s staff to give up their salaries for the remainder of the season to help the club.
The club’s players, first team coach Paulo Fonseca, and his staff, have volunteered to forgo four months’ salary this season to help the club navigate the economic crisis that has engulfed the world of football since the Coronavirus outbreak.
“We always talk about unity at Roma and in volunteering to cut their salaries for the rest of the season, the players, the coach, and his staff, have all proved that we really are in this together,” said Fienga.
“(Club captain) Edin Dzeko, all the players and Paulo have demonstrated they understand what this club stands for and we also thank them all for their superb gesture towards the employees at this club.”
Roma’s upper management team will also give up a percentage of their salary in this period to assist the club.
