Barcelona Advances with Wage Cuts

Barcelona has come up with specific measures to cope up with the surging corona virus pandemic. It has been announced on Thursday that Barcelona is planning to cut the salaries of its staff and players amidst the Corona Virus crisis. The football and the basketball squad will have to face a mandatory reduction in their wages as Spain is facing one of the worst breakdowns in the era. With the country pushed to lock down on March 14, the board of directors has decided to compulsorily cut down the money of its playing and non-playing staff, including the front end professional players like Lionel Messi.

This is done to reduce the current economic crisis faced by the country, says the board of directors. Since March 14, the country is facing one of its worst disasters with the citizens allowed to step out only for immediate business to avoid the disease spreading and reduce the number of fatalities. The country is one of the worst affected after Italy, with a death toll of about 800 on Friday. The club also has extended help by providing facilities to the government’s health department. The club has distributed 30000 masks to the Catalonia government as a part of aiding its citizens to cope up with the ongoing situation. The covers were made by the insurance company Taiping in china. Barcelona also distributed daily use masks to nursing homes.

MANCHESTER UNITED DROP POINTS TO AZ ALKMAAR

Manchester United struggles continue this season as they played out another unaspiring goalless draw against Az Alkmaar.

The outcome of the match and an uninspiring performance by both Az Alkmaar and Manchester United could also be attributed to the state of the pitch. The match was played at the Ado den Haag ground on an artificial surface after the collapse of part of a stand of Az own stadium meant the Dutch side were not able to host Manchester United in front of their home fans.

AZ ALKMAAR HELD TO DRAW BY WILLEM II

AZ Alkmaar headed into their clash against Willem II looking to keep pace with early pacesetters Ajax and PSV. There have been feel-good factors for the club after holding Manchester United to a 0-0 draw on Thursday, where the away side failed to make a shot on target.

AZ, as expected, dominated the opening exchanges with quick chances for Myron Boadu and Calvin Stengs leading that charge. In the 22nd minute, the pressure paid dividends as Boadu was brought down in the box by a clumsy challenge.
