AFE is seen today with Thebes: “The one who will say what to do is the Government”

first_imgThe Association of Spanish Soccer Players and LaLiga will meet again this afternoon by videoconference to continue tackling the crisis that is plaguing Spanish football as competitions cannot be played due to the coronavirus pandemic. David Aganzo and Diego Rivas, for the union, and Javier Tebas and Luis Gil, for the employers, will face each other from 19:00 on the fourth summit between them in just one week.AFE President David Aganzo attended AS this Thursday to reiterate that any hypothesis that is spoken and launched, regarding possible schedules and even losses to be assumed in the future by clubs and footballers, are valid as they depend on how they are developed events. “Here the one who will say what to do is the government and the health authorities. It is good to study the possible scenarios, but keeping this in mind.”Even so, the news continues to be produced regarding the calculations that each one makes and what can happen. Brand Today it has revealed some data that LaLiga manages about the losses that the clubs would have if the rest of the competition is played, with an audience (156 million) and without an audience (304), or if football does not restart (957), as already AS assured that some protagonists (not LaLiga) have come to value as a serious option since this week. In those calculations of the employers, with Champions and Europa League included, almost 50% would be assumed by the footballers. However, in no case would it be a general rule since each club must negotiate with its squads, since each economy is different, and it would even be necessary to negotiate player with player if necessary. As reported by AS days ago, players would see a 10% reduction in their salaries if played behind closed doors and 20% if the remaining 11 days cannot be completed. “We do not know the amounts that the clubs handle or what their losses would be. I suppose that the numbers that LaLiga reflects in its report refer to the 11 remaining days. The players, and we have already said it many times, are aware of the situation and are the most supportive. In fact, they are already reaching agreements to help their clubs as normal workers, “says Aganzo. He adds: “There are very different circumstances in each club. Lugo is not the same as Madrid. So there cannot be general data that applies to everyone.”“There will be a before and after with this crisis and what I do ask is that the footballer is not stigmatized. The meetings with LaLiga will continue. We do not agree with the ERTE and we choose to negotiate at all times. Here we must all go hand in hand, CSD, RFEF, LaLiga and AFE. What is clear is that the Government will dictate the guidelines to be followed at all times. We don’t even know if the competition is going to resume or not. It does not depend on anyone, but on a virus that is doing a lot of damage. And that is what we should focus on. In the health of everyone, footballers, family, fans and citizens in general. The rest, now, exceeds “, concludes.last_img read more
