Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O’Hara does not believe that Premier League players should not have to help EFL clubs remain afloat.
O’Hara claimed that he does not see why top flight players should have to accept a 30 per cent pay cut in order to help clubs which they have no affiliation with.
The 33-year-old said that if he was still a player at Spurs he would be instead suggesting to his team mates whether they could come together and help cover the remaining wages of the staff which have been placed on furlough at the North London club
He instead claimed that it should be the responsibility of the Football Association and league to look to help those clubs lower in the footballing pyramid.
Premier League players have already launched a “collective initiative” labelled as #PlayersTogether to help generate funds for the National Health Service and distribute them “where they are needed most” (talkSPORT).
“I disagree with players taking a 30% pay cut to help clubs they have no affiliation with.”
“That’s the job of the league & FA.”
“I’d want to help the NHS & people at my own football club.”@MrJamieOHara1 says PL players shouldn’t have to help EFL teams.
