Atalanta back salary cap

Atalanta director Pierpaolo Marino has suggested Serie A should adopt the new salary cap introduced in Serie B.

On Tuesday the Lega Serie B agreed to set a salary cap of €150,000 per season fixed wages (£127,000) plus up to €150,000 in performance-related bonuses, so the annual contract would not go beyond €300,000.

“The attitude seems conscientious, especially considering the moment of financial crisis Italy is in,” said Atalanta director general Marino.

“We ought to have a similar idea in Serie A, really. However, I am yet to understand how the clubs that are relegated into Serie B will fit in with those parameters.”
