Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘corona salary cut’ was revealed as a show.
The British media ‘Mirror’ revealed on the 25th (Korean time) that about 20 players, including Ronaldo, agreed to defer wage payments and then actually received them all.
Ronaldo was playing for Juventus in Italy’s Serie A. Ronaldo moved to Juventus in 2018 after working for Manchester United and Real Madrid. He played for Juventus until the 2020-2021 season. He subsequently moved to Manchester United and then Al Nasr in Saudi Arabia in 2023.
When Ronaldo was playing for Juventus, the coronavirus hit the world. Most professional sports leagues have been suspended. Even after the league resumed, spectators were not allowed to enter. Naturally, the clubs are in financial trouble. European soccer clubs cut labor costs first.
According to the Mirror, Juventus has delayed paying four months’ worth of salaries for the 2019-2020 season. The players also agreed. In principle, Ronaldo should have received only 17.2 million pounds (about 26 billion won). 메이저사이트
“The prosecution conducted an investigation alleging that the club (Juventus) had prepared false books in relation to transfers and other expenses, including salaries,” Mirror said. Prosecutors found sufficient evidence. Juventus were handed a 15-point penalty in Serie A after failing to appeal. Circumstances were also discovered that the players were intentionally involved.”
Mirror said, ‘If it is proven that more than 20 players, including Ronaldo, have received £79.5 million (about 120 billion won) in unpaid wages, a 30-day suspension may be added. It only applies to Italian football,’ he added.
Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur general manager Fabio Paratici, who worked for Juventus at the time, also failed to escape disciplinary action.
Mirror said: ‘Paratic joined Tottenham in 2021 after working for Juventus for 11 years. The Italian Football Federation handed Paratici a 30-month suspension. The Italian Football Federation plans to request an extension of this ban throughout Europe.”
If the request of the Italian Football Association is accepted, the impact is expected to be even greater. It cannot be ruled out that the suspension will apply to all European leagues as well as to the players.
