Roma players agreed to forgo their wages for four months to help the club during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The move will help pay the wages of non-playing staff affected by the current stoppage.

"The club's players, first-team coach Paulo Fonseca, and his staff, have volunteered to forgo four months' salary this season to help the club navigate the economic crisis that has engulfed the world of football since the coronavirus outbreak," released the club in a statement.

"The players, coach and his coaching staff have also agreed to collectively pay the difference to ensure that all Roma employees who were placed on the government's social safety net scheme will still receive their regular net salary."

Several other Serie A sides also agreed to cut player wages.

"We always talk about unity at Roma and in volunteering to cut their salaries for the rest of the season, the players, the coach, and his staff, have all proved that we really are in this together.

"[Club captain] Edin Dzeko, all the players and Paulo have demonstrated they understand what this club stands for and we also thank them all for their superb gesture towards the employees at this club," added club chief executive Guido Fienga.
