Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Danny Murphy has shared his views on whether players should look to take pay cuts during the coronavirus pandemic.

The impact of COVID-19 has hit clubs especially lower down the footballing pyramid with The Telegraph previously reporting that  Championship clubs are considering plan to cap player wages at £6,000 a week until the season can resume.

Murphy believes that the combined financial strength of the Premier League, Football Association and Professional Footballer’s Association should be enough to help those in need without asking the players.

However, the 43-year-old claims that players should not be immune from contributing but questioned what the cut off line should be for those who have to contribute.

The ex-England international feels that if the governing bodies get on side, the footballers will follow suit.
