Serie A wage plan 'by Monday'

FIGC chief Gabriele Gravina is still refusing to entertain the idea of ending the Serie A season but reveals the plan for wages will be out “by Monday”.

On a day when the Premier League warned of “difficult decisions”, amidst mounting speculation its clubs were pushing for an abandonment, Gravina stuck to his guns.

“The primary objective is to resume the season,” he told Radio Sportiva.

“We’ve outlined a scenario that foresees the resumption of the league campaigns because I think it’s the right thing to do.

“We have a duty to carry out this hypothesis. We’re also working on alternative hypotheses, to give concrete answers to our clubs and fans.”

The payment of salaries, many of them in excess of €100,000 a week, is fast becoming an issue for clubs…

“Several initiatives have been launched and we’re trying to find mediation between different positions.”

He later added to ANSA: “We’ll send you the plan for salaries by Monday.”
