Premier League clubs that have put their non-playing staff on furlough

The Coronavirus pandemic's adverse effects continue to reverberate cross the football world, with clubs feeling the pain of missing weekly action. 

The Premier League met on Friday to discuss, among others, the financial situation of many clubs, which are currently struggling to pay their non-playing stuff.

The government has offered some relief with its furlough scheme, which will cover up to 80 percent of wages up to £2500 per month.

Liverpool have been in the headlines for jumping on the opportunity to enlist their employees for the program. 

This has however not sat well with many of the fans and former players, who have questioned the decision. 

Which other clubs have enlisted their employees for the program?

  • Liverpool
  • Newcastle
  • Norwich
  • Bournemouth
  • Tottenham - applied a 20% wage cut on the employees

Meanwhile, Manchester City have become the first Premier League club to categorically say they will not be placing their non-playing staff on furlough. 

"We can confirm, following a decision by the chairman and board last week, that Manchester City will not be utilizing the UK Government's Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (government-funded furloughing).

With the virus continuing to ravage the world, more and more in the Premier League are expected to take the government's scheme.
