A few days back, it was stated that many club teams in the Liga MX would reduce their salaries due to the emergency of the current pandemic and slowly other club teams have followed along.
Las Chivas Rayadas de Guadalajara, just recently made It official that their club team will reduce the first team players and coaches salaries in order to aid and help the rest of the employees around the club team until the entire pandemic settles down, which could be another two or three months truthfully. This comes into a full surprise as the club team, Chivas, a few weeks back noted that they would not make any changes with the player’s salaries but now how the virus is affecting the country of Mexico and the league as a whole than it makes perfect sense to do what is right.
On Friday night president of Chivas, Amaury Vergara took to his personal Twitter account to make the statement of the player’s salaries will be reducing at the start of April until further notice.
Vergara said, “We are facing one of the biggest challenges in our lifetime, not only are people getting sick and dying, but some don’t have enough money to buy the essentials. The economy is taking a big hit during this coronavirus pandemic.“I want to thank all the players from the first team at Chivas that have agreed to take a pay cut in their salary during this crisis in order for us to pay other members from our staff. This will start this month of April and end when the pandemic is over. This goes hand in hand with what the founder of the Omnilife group and previous owner of Chivas, Jorge Vergara, would want in times like this. The philosophy in this franchise has always been helping others and taking care of our people. Mexico, let’s unite.”
Vergara club team also unites with the recent teams like Pachuca, Leon, Queretaro, Santos, Atlas, Tijuana and Monterrey in reducing their player’s wages due to the suspension of the Clausura 2020. The Liga MX yet has made another statement on when the tournament can resume as It was projected around the 15th of May but that could be a long shot as the pandemic continues to grow intense in the country of Mexico.
