FIGC president Gravina tribute to Juventus for waiving wages

FIGC president Gabriele Gravina has paid tribute to Juventus after the players agreed to waive their wages.

Juve's players and coach Maurizio Sarri will not be paid until June to assist the club through the coronavirus crisis.

“The agreement reached by Juventus is an example for the whole system," Gravina told ANSA.

“I thank Giorgio Chiellini, his teammates and Maurizio Sarri because, in wake of the collaboration that the FIGC hopes to have in days, they placed general interests at the heart of their conversations with the club.

“Unity and solidarity in the world of football represent the first great response to the emergency we're experiencing, and that risks becoming even more serious if we don't resume playing soon.

“Only through the contribution of all the protagonists, each of them playing their part, will we make football stronger."
