Seen a lot of outrage today about premier league players being paid full wages while non playing staff are being furloughed and rightly so, it is disgraceful! However, what I haven’t seen much of, is anybody calling the club owners out, the ridicule seems to be aimed mainly at the players.

While I do get it, the majority of premier league players aren’t going to miss 50% of their wage, the point is, they shouldn’t really have to take a pay cut! The majority of the owners in the premier league are billionaires or at the very least multi millionaires who I’m sure could afford to pay both the players and staff for a couple of months!

I’m not saying players shouldn’t lower their wages by the way. If the owners are refusing to pay non-playing staff their full wage, then the players should 100% take some sort of pay cut but I don’t think the blame should be aimed solely at the players in this situation!

{Ed002's Note - Why would you want to blame club owners. What about the clubs that have been discussing restructuring the wages with players. Don’t you think you should be better informed before making accusations like this?}

Not really an accusation, more of an observation. Club owners should be able to afford to pay staff wages without having to furlough the non playing staff.

{Ed002's Note - In many cases owners are not that close to the situation - I would not leap to make any suggestions about them without being far better informed.}

Not that close to the situation? Is it not the owner’s responsibility to make sure his employees are paid? I’m not trying to be difficult here, just not understanding the point you’re trying to make.

{Ed002's Note - The clubs largely run themselves perfectly well. It is unrelated to the owners.}

OP, Owners own the clubs. They don't RUN them. They hire people to do that, clearly. LFC is owned by FSG BUT they do not intervene in the day to day affairs of the club like transfers, contracts, player personel movement and wage structuring and all that. If LFC sign a player, the transaction is done by Liverpool Football Club and that is it. Asking owners to step into club affairs of this kind is the very thing owners should not even think about doing and many of them, don't.

The people the fans and the employees won't forget if the super rich players, managers and directors don't take a financial hit to pay the backroom staff their full salaries

My household is looking at a 40% hit in net income, and we sure as hell aren't rich.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe with no knowledge of what the Liverpool owners, coaches and players are doing you should head down the traditional route of hate groups on social media, spraying abuse on the stadium - perhaps a small fire. Why not take out the new training facilty with some pertrol bombs? Really teach Klopp and the players a favour.

Still spewing hate.}
