The Premier League has announced that it will consult players about a 30% salary cut, and has confirmed that the suspended league will only return in “safe and appropriate” conditions.
The League believes that the previous target date for the return of matches in early May is not possible, and on Friday it said that the date for the resumption of activity remains “under constant review.”
Amid speculation that the season would be cut or canceled, the League stressed that the goal remains to complete all domestic league and cup competitions.

The Premier League’s overriding priority is to aid the health and wellbeing of the nation and our communities. The 2019/20 season will only return when it is safe and appropriate to do so.

“But any return to the competitions will only take place with the full support of the government and the approval of the medical authorities,” she added in a statement.
The Premier League also voted to finance the lowest levels of £ 125 million to help them cope with the financial crisis caused by the Corona virus.
 
The Association of Professionals, which includes 72 clubs from three levels below the Premier League, said that the support money from the limelight will cover salaries and scholarships.
Communication will continue between the Premier League and the Professional Players Association on Saturday, as the two parties seek an agreement on salaries during the layoff.

Sports Minister Nigel Huddlestone said it was right to discuss the issue of players ’salaries when the position of the team members gets worse.
“The football authorities must recognize the power of public sentiment in this matter, and I expect them to show a leadership role in this matter,” he added.
 

The Premier League also confirmed that it is committed to paying 20 million pounds to support the national health sector, institutions and families to fight the virus.

“This includes direct funding for the health sector, supporting clubs in their efforts, developing outreach programs and assisting groups in need,” she added.
Less than 24 hours after British Health Secretary Matt Hancock said that players should “play their part” as part of the national effort to combat the epidemic, two initiatives have emerged from the players themselves.
Manchester United captain Harry Maguire asked his colleagues to donate 30% of their salaries to local hospitals, and found support from the squad.
 
England defender Maghaweer was one of 20 Premier League leaders who continued in Thursday’s meeting to discuss collective donation plans.
