Tony Thornton started this petition to The Football Association. Government

Large professional football clubs have been attempting to put huge numbers of back-room staff on Furlough. Tax-payers money and essential Government funds cannot be used for this when these clubs' players continue to receive obscene levels of salary, especially when they are not even playing.

When the rest of us are making huge sacrifices and undergoing financial hardship it is absolutely unacceptable that this continues, especially when football clubs hold out a begging bowl. Footballers are obviously too selfish on the whole to do this themselves so football needs to put its own house in order and impose unilaterally on all players contracts a wage cap urgently, or the Government needs to step in and do this.

As players wages are a huge drain on their clubs this is the only sensible way that they can survive. It is not acceptable that players continue to live their pampered millionaire lives whilst the back-room staff at clubs have to be subsidised with tax-payers money or lose their jobs.

Please support this demand that in the wake of Coronavirus the obscenity of football players wages is ended in order that football clubs can survive.
