The players and coaching staff of the Aston Villa first team, as well as the club’s senior management, have agreed to freeze 25% of their salaries for four months as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.This was reported this Saturday by Christian Purslow, executive director of the ‘villains’, to “help the club during this period of uncertainty” and also “with an additional review that will take place at the end of that period.”last_img
