England boss Gareth Southgate takes 30% pay cut

England manager Gareth Southgate has taken a 30% pay cut as the Football Association considers the government's furlough scheme as a contingency plan during the coronavirus pandemic. Southgate reportedly earns £3m a year and is one of the FA's highest earners who has agreed to the reduction as they seek to deal with the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 crisis. Meanwhile, employees who earn £50,000 or more per year will make do with a temporary pay-cut of 7.5% while senior management will earn 15% less.
