The French clubs want to obtain a reduction in the salaries of their players, in a particularly complicated economic context. A measure they want to extend until 2024.
The consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic are being felt in all sectors and the world of football has obviously not escaped it. In France, the Mediapro affair did nothing to help matters and today, Ligue 1 clubs are turning to the National Union of Professional Footballers to try to negotiate a general cut in wages.
Jean-Michel Aulas (Lyon), Jean-Pierre Caillot (Reims), Loïc Féry (Lorient) and Marc Keller (Strasbourg) will therefore do their best to reach an agreement, according to information released this Tuesday by The team. It is the president of Reims who confirmed having “asked the three (other) presidents to work with (him) on the file.” For Jean-Pierre Caillot, the TV rights which will be negotiated downwards logically lead to a reflection on what must be done.
A decrease for 4 years
The idea of the presidents is to have a salary cut that extends until 2024, as Caillot confirms: “ TV revenues are likely to decline this season and the following. Everyone has bet on a level of revenue over four years that no longer exists today and we will have to find a lasting solution for the contracts. “The president of Reims adds to be” well aware that clubs play their survival “and that everything must be done to” facilitate things so that they survive and that jobs are preserved. “
