​England men's and women's bosses take pay cut

England men's manager Gareth Southgate and women's boss Phil Neville are to take a 30% pay cut to their salaries as two of the Football Association's highest earning employees, reports BBC Sport.

Southgate earns £3m a year while Neville reportedly earns up to £300,000 as head coach of the Lionesses.

Chief executive Mark Bullingham said it was "challenging times" and did not "take these decisions lightly."

The government's furlough scheme is being looked at as a contingency plan.

The FA said employees earning £50,000 or more a year will take a temporary pay reduction of 7.5%, while senior management agreed a 15% cut.

"We want to take prudent and appropriate steps to help protect and support the FA and our employees during this unpredictable time."
