Sheffield United squad agrees wage deferral amid COVID-19 pandemic

Sheffield United players have agreed on a wage deferral until the end of 2020, as the world of football tries to fight financial breakdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Blades first-team squad have followed the lead of manager Chris Wilder, his backroom staff and the club's chief executive Stephen Bettis in accepting terms on holding part of their wages and bonus back during the pandemic.

Bettis said on the club's official website: "This announcement follows positive and constructive discussions throughout the club, taking into account the severity of the situation that the country finds itself in at the moment.

"It is a difficult period for everyone, but our football club also needs to be taken care of and I'm delighted that the players want to mirror the gesture of Chris and the staff by contributing, it confirms that they care about Sheffield United. 

"The players should be commended, not only for this action but also for their role in the #playerstogether initiative with other Premier League clubs."
