Moroccan top club Wydad Casablanca has ruled out slashing players and staff salary amid the coronavirus crisis.
Football activities in the North African nation have been suspended as the country battles the increasing number of Covid-19 cases. Clubs are definitely feeling the financial pinch due to lack of gate collections and other income-generating activities.
Many clubs across the world have asked their playing unit and technical staff to either take a pay cut, forego salaries or terminated their contracts as the financial crunch continues.
In an interesting turn of events and departure from the norm, Wydad president Said Naciri announced no player or staff will have their salaries touched.
Moroccan sports newspaper Le360sport reported that Naciri deferred with a club official who had proposed that a pay cut be applied on the club employees so as to save cash amid the crisis.
Morocco has recorded 225 cases of Covid-19 cases with six deaths so far.
