At this time, Bayern Munich players and club leaders have decided to give up 20 percent of their salaries and help those working at the club.
The German club is not the only one to do so. Another Bundesliga grand, Borussia Dortmund, has already done something similar. Similar decisions were made in Barcelona and Juventus as well.
Dortmund players have also declined to take their wages
Dortmund Borussia players have declined more than 20% of their salary during the Coronavirus hiatus. According to Bild, the decision will help the Dortmund club maintain a workplace for 850 employees.
