Chelsea and Arsenal legend makes huge sacrifice, forfeits 4 months salary to club amid COVID-19 crisis
– Cesc Fabregas has promised to let go of his next four months’ wages
– The 32-year-old currently plays for French Ligue 1 side Monaco
– Fabregas has also promised to add to the wages of the staff at the Monaco training ground
Monaco star Cesc Fabregas has offered to defer his salary at the club for the next four months to the fight against coronavirus, Telegraph reports.
The former Arsenal and Chelsea of England star who earns €121,000-a-week would now save the club huge amounts to help in this time of financial crisis.
Fabregas will also defer his 30 per cent pay cut for four months as well, and has told the club not to pay back the said figures.
It is believed that the move alone would save the Ligue 1 club over £2million as the star is reportedly willing to give up all that for good.
According to telegraph, Fabregas who earlier revealed that his 95-year-old grandmother contracted the deadly infection also promised to add to the wages of the staff at the Monaco training ground.
This is because the club have enforced a 30 percent pay cut to the entire squad which also affects the backroom staff.
While many clubs both in Europe and in the Premier League have struggled to reach agreement with their players over cuts and deferrals during the coronavirus pandemic, Fabregas is willing to take the situation into his own hands.
More football stars across the world have continued to lend their helping hand to the fight against coronavirus.
Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic has also promised to donate burritos to staff at a US hospital. The 21-year-old will now deliver the meal to those medical workers who he described as ‘amazing people’ at a hospital in the US every Saturday.
Pulisic personally paid for mountains of Mexican food from Chipotle to be delivered to the hospital where he was born.
According to him, medical workers on the frontline in the fight against coronavirus are the real-life superheroes.
However, Legit.ng earlier reported that former Premier League star Emmanuel Adebayor has insisted that he will not make any donations towards the fight against coronavirus pandemic in his country, Togo.
The French-speaking country has recorded a total of 88 cases including six fatalities since the virus broke out last December.
