Leeds United: Fans love Smyth verdict on club’s action

Leeds United: Fans love Smyth verdict on club’s action - Leeds United

Loads of Leeds United fans have been left agreeing with journalist Graham Smyth after he posted a link to his article in the Yorkshire Evening Post which praised the club for their recent actions.

Football is currently suspended in England due to events which are forcing lots of places in the world to lockdown, and as a result, there have been many people who have lost jobs, seen their wages cut or have been forced temporarily out of work until normality resumes.

In light of these events, Leeds’ players, coaching staff and senior management all decided to take a wage deferral which will see them give up part of their salaries for the foreseeable future (BBC Sport). This move was made to ensure that the club’s non-football staff would still be paid during the epidemic.

Smyth has insisted that supporters of the Whites should be proud of their club for thinking of their lower earners, which is in stark contrast to some others, notably Tottenham Hotspur who have placed their non-playing staff on furlough which means that they will only receive 80% of their wages (BBC Sport).
