Juve is reducing salary during coronavirus outbreak
Juventus has agreed with their senior staff to reduce salaries. Which could save the club €90 million (£81m/$101 million) during the coronavirus crisis. Many clubs around the world have to take drastic measures when it comes to cutting costs. With competitive actions during the period of indefinite delay, even global heavyweights begin to feel ticklish. Such as Juventus are currently unable to generate revenue from ticket sales or other revenue streams on match day.
