Baroka: Why we don't need to cut wages

PSL Lockdown News

Baroka FC have explained why they are in a position to keep paying salaries as more established PSL clubs around them take cost-cutting measures.

The coronavirus pandemic keeps causing more damage to the sporting world as worldwide lockdowns prevent football from returning.

South Africa has not seen any football played in a month-and-a-half as clubs start the process of implementing salary reductions.

However, Bakgaga chairman Khurishi Mphahlele explains that his team is not at that point yet and has given assurances that his club will not join the likes of AmaZulu in cutting salaries.

"We are not going to cut salaries for now, we've managed our salaries very well," Mphahlele tells KickOff.com.

"We will wait for May but for now our players mustn't worry about salaries, they will get them fully."

With some European countries starting to allow teams to resume group training, Mphahlele hopes government will allow PSL teams to do the same next month to get the wheels in motion again.

"We just hope government will allow us to train in May, then things will be better for us," Mphahlele adds. "That will determine whether we should look at our finances or not."
