The FA have announced wage cuts to some of the organisation’s highest earners including England manager Gareth Southgate.

English football’s governing body has been forced to take cost-cutting measures in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Those on the highest wages will be deducted up to 30% of their current salaries, with Southgate set to personally lose out on £225k.

Southgate’s deductions will be taken over the course of the next three months totalling that figure.

The Three Lions boss is on a £3million-per-year salary.

Staff were informed of the cutbacks in a message from chief executive Mark Bullingham on Monday, which was later published on the FA website.

The FA is also looking to utilise the Government’s coronavirus job retention scheme to furlough staff.

“We are proposing that all employees earning £50,000 or more per annum will take a temporary pay reduction of 7.5%,” Bullingham said.

“In the spirit of those on higher salaries taking the greater responsibility, the senior management team have agreed to cut their pay by 15% with the highest earners in the organisation agreeing to reduce their pay by up to 30%.”

Bullingham noted the “immediate and significant financial impact” of the FA being forced to postpone international and FA Cup fixtures, as well as major events at the stadium.

He added: “All of our profits are invested back into English football to support and grow the game for all. The less money we generate, the less flows back into the game.”

The news follows on from that of the Premier League, who this week asked all players to take a 30% pay cut.

Discussions had already been had between stars at all 20 top-flight clubs however, led by Liverpool captain and England star Jordan Henderson.

In addition, five Premier League clubs have now resorted to placing non-playing staff on furlough leave in a bid to save money.
