fourfourtwo

Manchester City have announced they will not be furloughing employees at the tax payers expense.On Saturday table-topping Liverpool became the fifth Premier League club to announce a furlough of non-playing staff, accessing the Governments coronavirus job retention scheme.That means the public purse will cover 80 per cent of affected wages, though there has been considerable criticism among those who believe the safety net was not being used as intended. The Reds announced a 42million pre-tax profit in February.Manchester City will not be accessing a Government furlough scheme (Martin Rickett/PA)Liverpools opponents in last years Champions League final, Tottenham, have also utilised the furlough option, along with Newcastle, Norwich and Bournemouth.The PA news agency understands Citys stance was discussed, taken and approved at board level last week, with staff informed before Liverpools position became public.A statement released to PA read: We can confirm, following a decision by the chairman and board last week, that Manchester City will not be utilising the UK Governments coronavirus job retention scheme (government funded furloughing).LiverpoolTottenhamNewcastleNorwichBournemouthWe remain determined to protect our people, their jobs and our business whilst at the same time doing what we can to support our wider community at this most challenging time for everybody.Liverpool, who are topping up the remaining 20 per cent of salaries, came under criticism from some of their former players on Saturday, with Jamie Carragher, Dietmar Hamann and Stan Collymore all unimpressed by their announcement.Carragher retweeted the clubs statement and wrote: Jurgen Klopp showed compassion for all at the start of this pandemic, senior players heavily involved in @premierleague players taking wage cuts. Then all that respect goodwill is lost, poor this @LFC#LFC is continuing to deal with a range of challenges caused by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and would like to update supporters on the progress that has been made to date. https://t.co/0QAiCSVDv6 Liverpool FC (at ) (@LFC) April 4, 2020Collymore was even more forthright as he wrote: I dont know of any Liverpool fan of any standing that wont be anything other than disgusted at the club for furloghing (sic) staff.Its just plain f****** wrong. Fellow football fans, furlough is for small business staff to keep those small businesses from going bump!Hamann later tweeted to describe the action as contrary to the morals and values of the club I got to know.Jurgen Klopp showed compassion for all at the start of this pandemic, senior players heavily involved in @premierleague players taking wage cuts. Then all that respect goodwill is lost, poor this @LFC https://t.co/9bE8Rw1veE Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) April 4, 2020Gary Lineker, speaking to BBC Ones flagship political programme The Andrew Marr show on Sunday, also appeared to question the clubs.The big clubs, youd have thought, would have been savvy enough to perhaps try to help more of their workers when players are earning so much money, he said.Liverpool fan group, Spirit of Shankly, sounded the contrary opinion and supported the clubs move.The use of the furlough scheme maintains that commitment (to treat staff fairly) and it ensures that all lower-paid staff who run a variety of contracts will continue to receive 100 per cent of their wage.
