FIGC pushes back payment deadline

The FIGC has officially pushed back the deadline for the payment of March wages.

The members of the council voted unanimously in favour of the move to help clubs struggling with the COVID pandemic on Monday. They agreed to move the deadline from May until June.

Serie A champions Inter have asked their players to give up two months wages, but most Serie A clubs are struggling financially due to the impact of the COVID pandemic.

“There are no problems, we are all looking at the situation appealing to conscience, but I can assure you all contractual obligations will be fulfilled,” said Inter director Beppe Marotta two weeks ago.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport and La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus have asked their players to postpone the payment of wages for four months, from March, until May.

Andrea Pirlo insisted last week the players and staff have received regular payments so far.

“The football world has to pay attention to these situations during a financial crisis for the sector. We have paid all the wages regularly, which we are proud of,” Juventus CFO Fabio Paratici said on Saturday.

“We have no collective negotiation process, we will speak to the players individually at the end of the season to see if we need to do anything.”

Serie A prize money revealed

Inter will earn €23.4m in TV revenue for winning the Serie A and there’s a difference of almost €3m between the second and the third-placed.

As Calcioefinanza reports, the TV pool for the 2020-2021 Serie A campaign is around €1.1 billion. Half of the sum is divided into equal parts among the 20 teams participating in the league.

A further 20 per cent is distributed according to the club’s supporter base and the remaining 30 per cent is split based on performances: 15 per cent depending on the current season, and 15 per cent on results from 1946. 

Inter have won their first Serie A title in 11 years and will get €23.4m, but Milan, Atalanta and Napoli can all finish behind the Nerazzurri.

Milan face Atalanta away on Sunday, while Napoli host Hellas Verona at the Stadio Maradona.

Juventus play away from home at Bologna and need a victory to finish in the top four, but either Napoli or Milan must fail to do the same.

A top four finish would make a huge difference in economic terms thanks to the Champions League prize money.

Inter and Atalanta have already earned a Champions League spot, and two between Milan, Juventus and Napoli will get the remaining ones.

Serie A prize money:

  1. €23,4m
  2. €19,4m
  3. €16,8m
  4. €14,2m
  5. €12,5m
  6. €10,9m
  7. €9,3m
  8. €8,3m
  9. €7,4m
  10. €6,3m
  11. €5,5m
  12. €5m
  13. €4,6m
  14. €4,1m
  15. €3,6m
  16. €3,2m
  17. €2,8m
  18. €2,2m
  19. €1,6m
  20. €0,9m

Di Canio argues about Mourinho

Paolo Di Canio argued with a Sky Sport journalist about José Mourinho: ‘Some Roma fans think they’ve already won the treble.’

The former Lazio striker doesn’t seem to be too excited about the Special One’s arrival in the capital.

Earlier in May, he went viral for a vicious rant against the former Inter, Tottenham and Chelsea boss.

On Sunday, he insisted the Portuguese coach has made “many mistakes” over the last few years.

“When Roma announced Mourinho, I received 300 messages from friends of mine who are Roma fans. I could only hear the screams, nothing more,” Di Canio said during Sky Calcio Club.

“I told the truth in that audio message that went viral. He’s made many mistakes over the last few years,” the former striker added.

“He won everything with Inter, but that was ten years ago. Some of my friends think they have already won the treble.

“I understand it’s not good for somebody to go against Mourinho, but it’s crazy to say he’s done well lately.”

Sandro Piccinini, one of the most popular football journalists in Italy, didn’t share Di Canio’s thoughts and defended the special one saying Mourinho had been sacked for different reasons over the last few years. “There was always a different story,” the journalist claimed.

At that point, Di Canio, didn’t hold back: “He was sacked and you are saying he did his job, fantastic,” he replied.

“Mourinho was sacked for multiple reasons. He didn’t bring the results and divided the dressing rooms.

“I know why you are saying these things, Sandro, but I don’t care about likes on social media, I lived the dressing rooms more than you did, so maybe you don’t understand some dynamics.

“I am telling you, Mourinho is not the same one he used to be.”

“I’ve been around the dressing rooms more than you, not as a footballer but as a reporter, I’ve spoken to many coaches and I can understand these things,” Piccinini replied.

Serie A clubs ask the FIGC to postpone deadlines for player wages

Serie A clubs will reportedly ask the FIGC to postpone the deadlines regarding the obligations for the payments of player wages.

Calcio e Finanza reports the 20 Serie A clubs will request postponement of the deadline to pay player wages of the last four months of the campaign.

The report reveals the hypothesis on the table, which emerged in the Assembly today, is to request the shift of the deadlines for the last four months of the 2020-21 season.

If granted, the deadline for the March payments would pass from May to June, April’s wages would pass from June to July, May from June to December and June’s deadline would be postponed from September to December.

The request will reportedly be made during the next Federal Council on May 17.
